The Helsinki Olympic Stadium (Finnish: Helsingin olympiastadion; Swedish: Helsingfors Olympiastadion), located in the Töölö district about 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) from the center of the Finnish capital Helsinki, is the largest stadium in the country, nowadays mainly used for hosting sports events and big concerts. The stadium is best known for being the center of activities in the 1952 Summer Olympics. Construction of the Olympic Stadium began in 1934 and it was completed in 1938.

The stadium was completely modernized in 1990–1994 and also renovated just before the 2005 World Championships in Athletics.

During concerts, depending on the size of the stage, the capacity is 45,000 - 50,000.
