Helsinki Olympic Stadium
Helsinki Olympic Stadium located in the Töölö district about 2 kilometers (1.2 mi) from the center of the Finnish capital Helsinki, is the largest stadium in the country, nowadays mainly used for hosting sports events and big concerts. The stadium is best known for being the center of activities in the 1952 Summer Olympics and was built to host the 1940 Summer Olympics, which were moved from Tokyo to Helsinki before being cancelled due to World War II. The stadium also hosted the first World Athletics Championships in 1983 as well as for the 2005 World Championships in Athletics. It is the home stadium of the Finland national football team.
Construction of the Olympic Stadium began in 1934 and it was inaugurated in 1938. It was designed in functionalistic style by the architects Yrjö Lindegren and Toivo Jäntti. The stadium had been completely modernized between 1990 and 1994 and also renovated just before the 2005 World Championships in Athletics. The capacity was at its maximum during the 1952 Summer Olympics with over 70,000 spectator places. Nowadays the stadium has 40,000 all-seated spectator places. During concerts, the capacity is increased to 45,000. The tower of the stadium with a height of 72 meters is a veritable landmark and can be visited. The tourist can enjoy impressive views over Helsinki.
Along with sports events, the Helsinki Olympic Stadium has hosted numerous concerts such as U2, Bruce Springsteen, Tina Turner, Michael Jackson, Metallica and The Rolling Stones.
Accommodation is provided by a Youth Hostel located within the Stadium complex. There are also many accommodation places in Helsinki at rates starting from 60 euro.
