Vantaa Nightlife, Finland

Vantaa, Finland - Nightlife

If there is one serious criticism that could be made of Vantaa as a tourism destination that serious criticism would probably have quite a bit to do with the fact that the nightlife in the city is not what it is in many of the other cities around the world.  However, one of the great things that offset that fact is the notion that Vantaa is right next to Helsinki and this allows you to quickly slip down to the Finnish capital for any of the nightlife activities you may want to pursue but would not get the chance to do if you stayed inside Vantaa the whole time.

However, there are many nightlife activities that you can pursue in Vantaa, starting with the cafes, bars and pubs that are available in the city.  While not as extensive as in some of the other cities, Vantaa does have respectable numbers in all three of these areas and for that reason, if your idea of the great nightlife is to grab a good dinner and then sit back and enjoy the sights and sounds while you have a few pints of beer with some friends, Vantaa is definitely a city that can provide you with that kind of action.  In this sense, the nightlife in Vantaa is not only adequate, but it is actually quite superb.

With that in mind, it is also important to realize that nightclubs are not very numerous inside the city of Vantaa.  If nightclubs are what you want for your nightlife activity, going through to Helsinki would be the best choice for you.  Helsinki has dozens of different nightclubs to cater to all of the different whims that a person might have and it is really not something that is necessary in Vantaa considering the way the two cities interact on a geographical and population flow basis.  So, when planning out your nightlife activities, be sure to remember that nightclubs are in Helsinki and everything else can be found in Vantaa.

When looking at the nightlife activities in Vantaa, it is important to consider not only the nearby city of Helsinki, but also the nearby city of Espoo.  Espoo, Vantaa and Helsinki together form the larger Helsinki Metropolitan Area and for that reason, many of the leisure activities are divided between the three cities.  For example, Espoo is home to many excellent sporting events that you would not find in Vantaa and if your ideal nightlife involves a spectator sport, taking the bus to Espoo from Vantaa might just be in the cards.
