"The Night of Arts" Top 5 Page for this destination Helsinki Off The Beaten Path Tip by Pomska

Helsinki Off The Beaten Path: 246 reviews and 377 photos

Don't miss the Night of Arts in Helsinki (or Tampere or Turku)!

The annual Night of the Arts is held on the last Thursday of August, in the middle of the Helsinki Festival.

On the Night of Arts in Helsinki almost all museums, galleries, libraries and bookshops are open late and there are all sorts of exhibitions and performances in the city. I think most of them have free entrance.

You can spend a really nice evening/night if you like different kind of arts. There's also some Finns who think that the Night of Arts is a very good reason to drink, so be aware those drunken Finns. :-)
