Allas Sea Pool was opened in the heart of Helsinki by the Market Square on September 1st. The unique complex brings together swimming, saunas, urban culture and sustainable development in the best possible place in Helsinki. Allas Sea Pool will revitalize Helsinki’s traditions as a spa city and bring the citizens of Helsinki an oasis of good life in the heart of the city. There were several spas operating in Helsinki in the 19th century, and there was also a popular spa on the shore of Kaivopuisto. Citizens and travelers visited the spa, where they could spend the whole day. And now it is possible again! At Allas Sea Pool, swimming is possible from dawn till dusk.
In the upcoming fall, top swimmers Jani Sievinen and Hanna-Maria Seppälä will hold couple of swimming courses and both act as advocates for good swimming skills and precise lifeguarding. In addition to the swimming courses, it is also possible to do yoga, pilates and Zumba at Allas. Concerts and other events like full moon swims, Sauna Talks –forums and DJ-nights will also be organized at Allas Sea Pool year-round.
Allas Sea Pool will be completely finished in the spring of 2017, when the main building is completed. The finished main building includes couple of roof terraces, á la carte restaurant, The Baltic Sea Center, a shop and conference rooms. The Baltic Sea Center introduces the life forms and the protection of the Baltic Sea, Archipelago and much more! The Cleantech Showroom will hold professional seminars as well as cleantech-oriented experiential content based on changing themes.
With its land and sea areas, Allas can fit 3,500 visitors at a time, which allows as many as 10,000 visitors per day. The main partners of Allas Sea Pool are Hartwall, Helen, Clear Channel and Viking Line.
On the first of September we celebrated the grand opening of Allas Sea Pool. Ricky-Tick Big Band & Julkinen Sana were the evening’s main attraction.
