  • The Olympic Stadium in Helsinki, as we were told during the tour of the city, had been built for the 1940 Olympics cancelled for the war and re-run in 1952. Considering the era of construction it is a beautiful structure of its kind.

  • In 1952, the Olympic Stadium was built, which is west of Djurgårdsparken in central Helsinki. A distance from the building works is also the Ice stadium.

  • Undergoing major refurbishment summer of 2019. Will be good when finished. Currently, a building site and inaccessible.
  • Historic Place. Build for Olympic games that took place here in 1952. Did you know that the Olympic Games was supposed be held here few years earlier but were cancelled because of the war? :)
