Svenska Teatern

Pohjoisesplanadi 2, 00130 Helsinki

Svenska Teatern is the National Theatre for plays in Swedish. All the shows are in Swedish, but on the main stage some plays have Finnish subtitles and on occasion also in English.

Svenska Teatern celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2017 and is well worth a visit, if not for the performances, for the stunning architecture. The building was designed by Russian architect Nikolaj Benois and in 1935-36 a modernisation of the building was conducted by Eero Saarinen and Jarl Eklund.
