  • What an amazing place! Huge, enormous building. It has a lot of levels inside, although it doesn't look like that from the outside. There is one beautiful room, great design and then you go to the lib...  more »
  • In this gem, you can take a break, and roam the old library. Beautifully decorated inside, antique and equipped it with modern jobs. Here is get lost only a few tourists, especially no tour groups. No entrance fee.

  • The national library is one of the finest restored, in accordance with the value of their buildings. Different from the inside and admire the architecture and old books. Quote does not need to, but you can do that, too. Climb the stairs in the Rotunda dome room balcony, so you can admire the potential of even closer

  • More beautiful in the inside that its outside facade. If you're visiting the city come by and don't miss it.
  • I don't like the fact that you can't go inside with bags. It's quite useless a library where you can't get inside with a bag.
  • The books are really available which is not always the case in that kind of library. It is not the biggest but still feels quite important and I found the atmosphere really matching what you would expect from a library.
  • Another beautiful free attraction. Kansalliskirjasto library is on the left side of the Helsinki Cathedral, which no tourist will fail. You are very lucky, if you can get into the days of the exhibitions or concerts, which periodically take place within the walls of this building. But even if nothing will 15-20 minutes chinnogo promenade through the halls in silence is also not bad to be unloaded. Silence, books, beautiful interior, what more do you need? Comfortable padded stools, all true and is here available. Not found, well all might not be so perfect.

  • A small but beautiful library. The main hall and the spectacular ceiling painters, filled with the aroma of sweet sweet old book store. This is from the locals and the inspiration by reading books, mixed at best.

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.
