Olympic Helsinki

Helsinki’s Olympic venues were originally built for the 1940 Olympics, which were canceled due to WWII, and later used for the 1952 Olympic games instead. The Tennis Palace is not the only venue from that time that is still in use: In the summer, you can join the locals at the popular open-air Swimming Stadium, and the Olympic Stadium, which continues to host sports matches and concerts, is one of the city’s major landmarks.
