Helsingfors Ishall, byggd 1966, erbjuder en autentisk atmosfär för Nostalgia Car Show. Här anordnades de stora showerna under 1980 talet, och en del av fordonen kommer nu tillbaka som de en gång i tiden, stod uppställda. Registrering till showen är öppen.

Nostalgi Car Show är en 1 dags show, en samling kring fordon och livsstilen som representerar de vilda galna tiderna på 70-talet, 80-talet och början av 90-talet. Det kommer att finnas starka överlevare, färska restaurationer och patinerade fynd, ifrån en gången tid när allt verkade möjligt och stilen i bilbygge var djärv och vild. Det kommer att bli en unik sammankomst och bilutställning som också har en hobbypark för den nya generationens hobbybilar utanför arenan. Dagen avslutas med en cool cruising parad från arenan till Helsingfors city, som blandar showbilarna och andra nyare hobbybilar i en skön mix som kommer kittla alla sinnen och vara något att minnas, länge framöver.

How to get from Vantaa Airport to Helsinki?

Helsinki Airport is the biggest airport in Finland. It's situated in the suburbs called Vantaa, 19 kilometers from the city centre. You can get to Helsinki from the airport by three transport options: by train, bus, or taxi (transfer). The train that connects the main train station of Helsinki with the airport spends 27 to 32 minutes to get to the destination, and its ticket price is EUR 5. You can also get to city centre by bus, and thus you'll cover this distance in 35-40 minutes for EUR 3. And, finally, the fastest but the most expensive option is to take a taxi or book a transfer. The price for taxis depends on several factors: the time of day, number of people and the distance, so the trip cost may vary from EUR 30 to EUR 50. The duration of the trip is about 30 minutes.

Where to eat

What You want to eat in Helsinki?

The restaurant and cafe culture in Helsinki has absolutely flourished in the last few years and the central suburbs are developing a gastronomical scene to rival the trendiest of international cities. 

Helsinki is gaining its fair share of Michelin star restaurants but it's the wonderful, community-minded and ethically oriented cafes, lunch places and internationally themed (and run) restaurants that are popping up like mushrooms in the rain.
