  • It was quite interesting to stroll through submarine Vesikko, looking at the living conditions of the submariners, equipping and arming submarine of the Kriegsmarine during World War II. Submarine Vesikko ("mink") launched on May 10, 1933 year. Participated in the Soviet-Finnish war, 1939-1940 in the second world war. Certainly not on our side. In any case, visiting boats seemed interesting. So much so that walked boat without other companies. The Helsinki Card free of charge.

  • The sub is quite overall worth a large portion given over to the torpedos, engines and navigation areas. One small galley and two tiny areas for sleeping. It’s definitely worth a look - you might even...  more »
  • I have long wanted to visit the submarine. Very interesting, although you can catch all of 15 minutes to explore. Tip: grab your ticket directly on the substrate and the Manege (military Museum). So it will be cheaper.

  • Cool piece of history and interesting back story - Finnish submarine constructions were secretly supervised by German engineers as prototype project, precursors to German U-boats. As Germany was at the time sanctioned from constructing their own. However small and probably not worth the admission price unless you have a Helsinki card.
  • Great experience walking through an authentic WWII submarine. Torpedoes, bunks, radio room, engine room.
  • It look nice from outside but unfortunately it was closed so didnt get the chance to see it from inside
  • Interesting, only surviving World War II Finnish submarine. All others destroyed by treaty.
  • Nice to see old history submarine.

Where to stay in Helsinki

Set yourself up with easy access to many of Helsinki's most popular tourist sites by staying in the city's bustling and modern center. You'll find that the area is packed full of shops, restaurants, and bars, plus it's conveniently close to both the city's main train station and energetic waterfront. Though there's certainly a range of options when it comes to big-name hotel chains and upscale accommodation, prices are generally higher throughout most of the center, so consider staying at a hostel to cut down on costs. Hostels typically offer a solid location in or near the city center at a fraction of the cost of a big chain.
