Preface info on the EJC 2010 and Helsinki...
The Finnish Swimming Association is organizer of the 37th European Junior Championships in Diving, Swimming and Synchronized Swimming 2010. The Diving and Swimming competitions will be held in the City of Helsinki at the famous Mäkelänrinne Swimming Center, the venue of the European Championships held in 2000 and the European Short Course Championships 2006. The Synchro Swimming will be held in Tampere Swimming Center (the venue that already hosted the EYOF swimming competition in July 2009). In the next few pictures bellow and the column, introduce Helsinki, the venue pool and read about other interesting facts...

The population of the metropolitan area of Helsinki is 1.2 million, although the footprint of Helsinki is far larger. Helsinki spreads around a number of bays and peninsulas and over a number of islands. The inner city area occupies a southern peninsula, which is rarely referred to by its actual name. Much of Helsinki outside the inner city area consists of postwar suburbs separated from each other by patches of forests. A narrow, ten kilometer long Helsinki Central Park that stretches from the inner city to the northern border of Helsinki is an important recreational area for the residents. No one could describe Helsinki as the prettiest city in the world, being more functional than decorative, and the city is relatively short of famous landmarks. Few of them have to be mentioned: Senate Square, surrounded by the Government's Palace, the main building of the University, and the enormous Cathedral, which was finished in 1852, Finlandia Hall, the Euroclub at the Old Student House which has been the official hangout for the Eurovision Song Contests participants and guests (when Marija Serifovic, SRB singer picked up the Eurovision crown) in 2007.
