Recommendation by Lemi

The Finnish National Theatre is the oldest Finnish-language theatre in the country that is still in operation. It was designed by Onni Tarjanne, a Finnish architect and professor of construction, in 1902, and is located behind a statue of Finland’s most prominent writer, Aleksis Kivi. It is a grey brick building with a contrasting red roof, and towers that shoot towards the sky. Arches frame its tall windows, bringing to mind classic Art Nouveau portraits. Talk about stunning! It is also Finland's first public building, where the features of repetitive styles have receded to give way the Art Nouveau style.
