  • It's really crowded with many people and cold. But it has a lot of shops and cafés and many trains every hour. Most busiest time is probably at morning so prepare yourself.  more »
  • Apart from the train service being extremely efficient the central station is stunning too. Well worth a look around when in Helsinki and especially if you're catching a train!  more »
