This must be the most beautiful swimming hall that I have ever visited. Nearly 90 years old, it's the oldest public pool in Finland - in the heart of Helsinki. I love this place but only visit it occasionally; this place is only open for...More

The only positive thing is that it's allowed to swim without bikini. For the rest the price is too high for what the place offers: the swimming pool is really little with only 3 lines, one of them would be reserved for "fast swimmers", but...More

I recently had an afternoon free in Helsinki, and decided to check out this place. It really was a pleasant experience. I sprung for the upper level, which provides a cabin where you can lock away your valuables, like your wallet and phone. You pay...More

I've been wanting to check out Yrjönkatu Uimahalli for awhile, and I had to attend to some things in Helsinki, so I finally had a chance. It did not disappoint. Since I didn't have a towel with me, I decided to spend a little more...More

My local Finnish friends took me here for an afternoon to relax in the sauna, cool off in the swimming pool, and have some drinks and snacks. Pretty nice, laid-back atmosphere with a good mix of local Finns and some tourists. Yes, everyone is nude,...More

While the settings are lovely and the experience of swimming in an art deco swimming pool/sauna in central Helsinki is truly unique, the staff has some serious customer service issues. I used to love the swimming hall until I basically got kicked out with wet...More

This is definately the best public pool in Finland. It has separate days for women and men. The best thing is that you swim naked, so enjoyable. Cafeteria serves snacks and you can relax there after a swim and sauna.
