"The Helsinki Metro is..." Helsinki Transportation Tip by Michael_D

Helsinki Transportation: 334 reviews and 353 photos

The Helsinki Metro is great...I didnt speak any Finnish so i did my usual free ride..knowing if I got caught I would pay some miniscule fine and...YIKES..as I rode I realised that was a great plan in Russia an Hungary where things are cheap...but I was in Finland!!!!...home of the 2 dollar coke and $190 single room. I quickly got off at the next station and 'did the right thing'...for all I knew it was like a $500 fine...LOL YOU can purchase a HELSINKI for increments of 1,2 0r 3 days. It entitles you to use the trams/buses/metro and also a bus tour, boat tour and admission to selected museums.You can purchase them at the HELSINKI TOURIST OFFICE.
