Swim With The Swans at Löyly Sauna, Helsinki

Löyly Helsinki is a public sauna and restaurant, located on  the edge of the sea in the Munkkisaari area, a part of Helsinki that is still in the process of redeveloping itself from an industrial port into an upscale residential and leisure complex. I visited with my wife, Satu, on a Saturday in mid-October – below are 8 tips to get the most from your visit to Löyly Sauna.

Finnish Football Show 25: Euro 2020, Finland are nearly there!! 😮

Join Mark (@explorefinland),  Mark (@FCSuomi) and  Keke (@kekemyllari) for regular episodes, where 3 old blokes sit and talk about football in Finland. In English.

We’ll preview this weekend’s final round of Veikkausliiga games and discuss who might get the European places and these new, European play-off spots.

We also have the regular features, “ja sillä sipuli” and “Following”. But. Surely. There’s only one place to start this week. And that is with last week’s games for the National team against Bosnia-Herzegovina and Armenia.

Add to that, the re-emergence of our old friend (and FFS founding co-host) Rich from Escape to Suomi  and our regular features. It all adds up to refreshingly upbeat,  Finnish Football Show.

Finnish Football Show 24: Euro 2020 Qualifiers, Veikkausliiga Splits & Finns on Fire 🔥

Join Mark (@explorefinland),  Mark (@FCSuomi) and  Keke (@kekemyllari) for regular episodes, where 3 old blokes sit and talk about football in Finland. In English.

In episode 24, we look back at the recent Euro 2020 qualifiers (and forward to the upcoming games), we try to explain what happens now that the 2019 Veikkausliiga has split into two ‘series’ and we discuss a few Finnish players, who are figuratively (not literally) on fire! season at the halfway stage.

Add-in some short news stories and our regular features and it’s another reassuringly average,  Finnish Football Show.
