Art Museum
“An ambitious contemporary art museum well worth checking out. The unfortunate abbreviation makes many think of sandwich topping made of pork's booty, but the only hunger you'll satisfy here is that for aesthetic revelation. Also admire the architecture of the so-called Tennis Palace housing the museum, as well a gigantic multiplex movie theatre. There was, however, never any tennis played here. Instead it was used as a basketball court in the 1952 Olympic Games. But that's another story. ”

“The best swimming hall in Helsinki! Opened in 1928 and open every day, Yrjönkatu swimming hall, drawn by architect Väinö Vähäkallio, has been chosen as one of the most beautiful swimming pools in the world by the BBC. Men and women have different days for bathing; women Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, men in the days between. At 14.00 each day the upper floor opens, and that is what makes this place what it is! Enjoy Finnish delicacies and try their traditional Jallusima-drink overlooking the pool! Heaven in central Helsinki. ”
