  • Beautiful theater! And the performance of Chess was wonderful :)
  • Simply amazing have never been in a better place!
  • Very good theater
  • The theater itself is a typical theater in the very heart of Helsinki. The plays range from classical plays to comedy and musicals. The name "Swedish Theater", as Google translated the name into, is somewhat misleading. The name "Swedish" does not indicate that the theater or it's repertoire has anything to do with with the country of Sweden. Rather it indicates that the plays are performed in the swedish language and caters in that way to the needs of the swedish speaking minority in Finland. After all, Finland has two official languages, finnish and swedish. The correct name of the theater is "Svenska Teatern".
  • Very good theater. Chess was Fantastic musical!
