Helsinki’s Central Railway Station was designed by architect Eliel Saarinen but today’s Sculpture of Helsinki, the ‘Lantern Carriers‘, were designed by Emil Wikström. The building is considered to be an excellent example of National Romanticism and is often featured in lists of the World’s Most Beautiful Railway Stations.
You can find almost 500 outdoor sculptures, pieces of environmental art and historical monuments in Helsinki and they are accessible to everyone. See more and search through the database at HAMhelsinki.fi
