"Train Station" Helsingin Päärautatieasema (Central Railway Station) Tip by martin_nl

  Train Station seen from the Railway Square
by martin_nl

The Railway Station is one of the best-known symbols of Helsinki. This granite building, considered the most important work by Eliel Saarinen, was completed in 1919. It is one of the examples of Finnish architecture best known abroad. The Railway Station is a major junction for public transport in Helsinki. It also has Helsinki’s main underground station and a lively underground shopping centre. The statues holding lanterns on either side of the main entrance are the work of Emil Wikström. The railway came to Finland in 1862.
