The Railway Station or the Rautatieasema is an architecturally noteworthy station in Helsinki. The structure was opened in 1862 and has ever since been a very important landmark in the city. It is the center of a very busy railway network and hence a transport hub which is the beating heart of a network.
But the building itself is beautiful. The old timey arches, huge windows and giant skylights and chandeliers make it a real sight to be beheld. There are giant statues at the entrance which are very famous and unique to this structure. The glass ceiling on the terminals is also worth seeing.
Due to its historic and architectural importance, the building is worth a see. Even if you don’t plan to travel by train it will be worth your while to check this station out.
- There are no timings for the railway station of course. The opening and closing time for the contact office have been given. You can visit the station at any time you wish.

A beautiful train station and an architectural icon for Helsinki. Be sure to view the statues of the four large men outside the main entrance doors (a bit art deco?). Inside, the building is well organized and the trains run like clockwork. Coming from the United States where our rail systems leave something to be desired, it's refreshing to see that trains really can run efficiently!
This is a marvellous train station to visit even if you are not taking any train. There is a pretty garden inside the train station to sooth the rushed mood of travellers. The layout of the whole area is attractive. The area is very crowded. The toilet is expensive. There is a free one just outside the station.
I saw a lot of people from different countries here. Maybe travelers, maybe people who live here. Always a busy place
Quite ok inside. Finding a free luggage trolley (free but need a coin to unchain) might be a challenge though. Trains from St-Petersburg and Moscow come to here.
Really liked this central station, easy to navigate and the train to Saint Petersburg was one of the best during my travels in Europe
