Helsinki Central Railway Station

Recommendation by Lemi

The Central Railway Station is probably the first thing you will see when you arrive at Helsinki. It is impossible to miss because it’s absolutely massive and stunning, rightly chosen as the world’s most beautiful railway stations by BBC. It was completed in 1919 by architect Eliel Saarinen, one of the most prominent figures in Art Nouveau architecture. The station is clad in Finnish granite, with two sets of male guardian sculptures holding spherical lamps on either side of the building’s main entrance—the “Stone Men” (or “Ball Guys,” as the locals fondly call them).
