Gay Friendly Helsinki

Finland and above all Helsinki area is safe and liberal these days. Finland is one of the most stable and safest countries in the world also when it comes to the safety of LGBTQ people. The gay scene in Finland is mostly focused in Helsinki although we have gay clubs and bars also in Tampere and Turku.

Gay Guide Helsinki

There are several gay clubs and bars in Helsinki. Most of them are located in the centre so it is easy to reach them by walk. The biggest gay clubs are dtm and Hercules which are attracting a bit different audience. Hercules is for mature men and dtm audience is younger and more mixed. The bars in the city centre are Room Bulevard and Cavalier. Once again Cavalier for more adult men and Room Bulevard is more mixed. For more information about the gay scene in Helsinki please visit our Gay Guide Finland.
