Midsummer in Helsinki
22.06.10

Photo: Marianne SjöblomWhen the days are long and the nights are white in late June, the Finns celebrate Juhannus, the Midsummer festival, over a three-day holiday weekend from Friday to Sunday. Friday is Midsummer Eve and Saturday Midsummer Day. Many people leave cities and head for the country to celebrate. Helsinki will become unusually quiet for the Midsummer weekend.

The 2010 Midsummer festival will take place from Friday to Sunday, June 25-27. Buses and commuter trains will operate on special holiday schedules on Friday and Saturday. Public health stations, libraries and City museums will be closed.

On Friday, Midsummer Eve, all public transport services will operate a Saturday service. On Saturday, Midsummer Day, a Sunday service will start at around 11 am. The Suomenlinna ferry and commuter trains will operate from the morning. Bus 24 will operate additional service on Midsummer Eve to serve visitors to the Midsummer festivities in Seurasaari.

Public health stations will close their doors at 4 pm on Thursday, June 24, and remain closed throughout the weekend. Health care services at Midsummer are available at emergency units. In case of serious acute illness, accident or other emergency requiring immediate emergency care, call 112. Guidance on health-related matters is provided by the health hotline at (09) 10023. Outside health station operating hours, Emergency Clinics at the Haartman and Malmi Hospitals are open for people requiring urgent medical care.

Public libraries will serve on the Saturday summer schedule on Thursday and remain closed Friday to Sunday. City museums will also remain closed throughout the Midsummer weekend.
