  • Like all public buildings in the city, the City Hall is a sober, Neo Classic style. Night is illuminated and yields good pictures.

  • Landscape banners was especially noticed in the town. Our Saint sea, Park Street, is in the Presidential Palace. Strong formal atmosphere.

  • The Bonk Industries exhibition was out of this world. Make sure to google Bonk Industries as you leave, with their free wifi. Best art exhibition I've ever seen by so much. Descriptions are the best.
  • Attended a nice function here. And per Martin Lunn's review have added some Bonk pictures!
  • Pretty eye-catching building which houses the mayor's office.
  • The city hall provides shelter just to Homeless with documents from Helsinki. Quite discriminating.
  • Fine from the balcony of the City Hall, the Interior of the great and great views of the market square.
