Well, Helsinki, "somehow", IS Stratovarius-related... Wink
I´ll be there from this Friday till Easter Monday and as I don´t understand (much) Finnish (yet) and as most of the websites are written in this language... ->> is there somebody who could give me any good advice where to go at night? Cool metalplaces??
Will there even be a metalgig, perhaps, this weekend??
I booked this trip BEFORE the THUNDERSTONE-tour with ICED EARTH was cancelled...

THANX IN ADVANCE!!!

SEMIFINAL, ILVES and TAVASTIA are on the same street which is called Urho Kekkosenkatu. A bar called MANALA is favourite among finnish artists, it is located at Dagmarinkatu 2. NOSTURI is a larger club for live music, located at Telakkakatu 8.

Corner BAr is great!
Check also Bar "poppis" in kaivopiha (go through The big black building with curious sausage-like balcony opposite of the central railway station).
I haven't visited poppis for a while, but they used to play all kinds of "softer metal" (HIM, Sentenced, metallica) there. Check it out!

BTW, where in germany you are from? I'm about to go through erasmus-program to study in germany (universität Hanover) for 6 months next autumn...I might also need some advice?

Hi Turbonorsu,
I live about 400 km away from Hanovre, so I might not give you advices to that town, sorry...
But if I can help you with any other information or so, let me know!

Avoid these places. Highlight, Ooppera, premier and CTRL.
Corner bar is great and so is on the rocks.

Ahem...most of the metal hangouts in Helsinki pretty much suck, but you simply have to visit Corner Bar and Tavastia...I was there last night and I'm actually drunk at work now so...welcome to hell...sinki.

What a pity... Crying

Hi, check out RyanAir: Milan-Frankfurt-Tampere (FIN). It costs very few.

Another good choice is SAS Scandinavian, it's not that expensive sometimes...
Are you a student? In any case, check out CTS website www.cts.it there are many flights with different prices and rules!! Good luck!

Ok! I've booked a RyanAir flight stopping in Frankfurt: 160 €! That's a good price IMO... I've checked other offers and they were all about 1000 €! Worried !DreAdFuL! Worried

Grazie Luca! Tongue
I'm leaving on July, 15 and I will be there just for the fabulous TUSKA Festival... Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Great bands in a great city!

Maybe the future is starting to smile towards me..! Ban_dance01 Biggrinbounce2 Ban_dance02

Does anybody know how far is Tampere from Helsinki? Can I reach it by train or on bus? Confused

By the way....
I think that 30 € for one day at TUSKA is a cheap price... here in Italy we could waste 45 € (45€!!!) for one day at Gods-of-Metal... and the names right here are not at the same level of the Tuska's ones! >=(

I'm nto sure how far Tampere exactly is from Helsinki, but maybe between 250 and 350 kilometers? I might be very wrong, though! Very Happy

You can get by train to Helsinki from Tampere and vice versa. Smile

Yes you can. I'd recommand you the bus. it's a little bit cheaper than train and it's quite a good experience. Don't lose too much time in Tampere, there is nothing to see except a really old printing factory, which is closed Very Happy

It's more and more difficult to find cheap flights everywhere, but perhaps u can try to get a Interrail pass ?
with this pass; you can travel as much as you want in Europe during 15 days or 1 month , and the price of the passes are quite cheaper than a flight (and you can always use that pass in the country) !!!

The only bad point is that you can't use these passes in the country in which you live. So if you live not too far from a border, you can pay a little to go to the nearest foreigner city, and then enjoy your pass !

more info there : http://www.interrailnet.com/

Now honestly, I am not sure that it really worth it. Generally the prices for trains or buses are not really expensive in Finland.
If I remember right, one train ticket from Helsinki til Rovaniemi costs 70€.


Well... I'll check the trip distances in order to spare some money.
But I'll probably take an airplane to get to Rovaniemi: some stand-by low-cost fares are almost cheaper that one railway-ticket! Tongue

Gotcha! Cool
My "Lonely Planet" guide told me so.. and then I took the properly precautions!

...it's a real trap for tourists... ...have a photo of yourself with the Artic Circle pannel (everyone do that there !!!)


Thank you for your advice!
I'll surely take that kind of photo Tongue !!
If you're travelling to Italy, don't hesitate to ask me for advice... I'll try to be as kind as you have been! Very Happy

p.s. maybe I'll ask you something else before my departure Smile

p.p.s ...like the places to be seen! Biglaugh

A bus from Tampere drives to main station Helsinki 1/2 an hour after arrival. If I do remember right it lasted about 2 or 2 1/2 hours and costs 20 € each way.

Yes, it´s the same at all Ryan Air´s airports - busses drive you directly to the big cities. It at least happened to me like that in Helsinki, Stockholm and Venice...
