Swim beneath a stunning Art Deco interior at the oldest indoor pool in Finland, Yrjonkadun Swimming Hall. Soak up the healing water of this pool, which locals traditionally swim in nude (though you can choose to wear a bathing suit if you'd like). This neoclassical structure originally opened in 1928, and the well-preserved building has historical and cultural significance to the city. Since its renovation in 1996 you can fully experience its intended splendor. Spend some time in the site's sauna or gain access to the 2nd floor with a more inclusive ticket, where you'll find a cabin, bathrobes, and other amenities.

Yrjonkadun Swimming Hall Reviews
Step back in time when you enter the swimming hall with its lovely Victorian era decor. I visited several times as it's a really good way to spend a few hours in cold or wet Helsinki. Two saunas on th... more »
トラムの走る大通りからFORUM横の坂道を上がっていくと、UIMAHALLという入り口が見えてきます。 そこに営業時間が貼り出されていて、あいにく訪問したのが土曜日でその期間の女性開放日は月・水・金とのことで入場かなわず。 中央駅からも近く、こんな街中にあると思わなかったので、次の訪問時は利用してみたいと思います。 more »You can see the entrance of UIMAHALL when you go up the slope on the side of the FORUM from the tram. The opening hours were pasted there, and the woman's opening day of the period on Saturday was not suitable for the visit with the moon, water, and money unfortunately. The location is very close to the train station and the hotel is very nice.
This is a special place - women and men swim on separate days, naked. Of course you can use a swimming suit if you wish. It's a historical building with a lot of character. You are able to rent your own little resting area on a second floor on specific times, also a small menu is available. Otherwise you use a normal small locker on a first floora. My absolute favourite, highly recommend.
It's a really nice place. What is surprising for a foreigner is the possibility to go nude in the swimming pool. So expect to see most people's hoo-haas staring right at you when swimming. The 90 degree sauna is as strong as it gets, at least that's what it says on the sign... Though you'd have to sit rather close to the stove(?) to get any decent heat. I guess they worry that some people might die out there... For students it's a good price of 3 euros. Don't expect also any jacuzzi or bath, which would be nice to have! 😃 Otherwise a nice historic and beautiful place. Just remember to check - separate swimming days for women and men
