    Entrance 15 euros, a small Exposition. Most Finnish artists. There are some good work by Ilya Repin and French artists. In General, historic, gloomy, the overwhelming impression (personally, my), dark (grey, black, olive) wall, a strange mix of genres and styles. (room for relaxation with classical columns and table lamps a la Ikea ...). The Hermitage, the Russian Museum or do not wait ... Visit stands for common development. The Finns tried.

Where to stay in Helsinki

Set yourself up with easy access to many of Helsinki's most popular tourist sites by staying in the city's bustling and modern center. You'll find that the area is packed full of shops, restaurants, and bars, plus it's conveniently close to both the city's main train station and energetic waterfront. Though there's certainly a range of options when it comes to big-name hotel chains and upscale accommodation, prices are generally higher throughout most of the center, so consider staying at a hostel to cut down on costs. Hostels typically offer a solid location in or near the city center at a fraction of the cost of a big chain.
