  • We went here in the hope of both seeing the Olympic stadium and perhaps having a glimpse of the famous eagle owls that are on the area. Neither happened. The stadium was being renovated and you could not get too close to it. And the Finnish bird group are quite rude and never reply to any emails regarding getting help to see the birds. Very disappointed.
  • Great experience, lovely place to visit.
  • Unfortunately it’s under reconstruction. Impossible to get in.
  • Ok
  • Very nice place to visit. Old, definitely but still looking good. The tower is well worth visiting if weather is good.
