Yrjönkatu swimming hall

The swimming hall was inaugurated on 4 June 1928 For decades it was Finland’s only public swimming hall. It was transferred to the ownership of the City of Helsinki’s in 1967. The hall is architecturally valuable, serving as an impressive example of the classism of its time. Over the decades it has retained its original appearance, and after the renovations which – began in 1997 – the fantastically restored hall was reopened in October 1999.

There are separate swimming sessions for men and women, with bathers having the choice of whether to wear a swimming costume or not. The option to wear a swimming costume became available from September 2001.
