Stroll by the sea at Sibelius Park & Monument, which commemorates Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. Designed by Eila Hiltunen and completed in 1967, the structure features over 600 steel pipes fused together with a bust of the composer to represent the music of Sibelius. Photograph this 24-ton work of abstract art, which is also one of Helsinki's most popular tourist attractions. Some say they can hear music playing here with the sound of wind moving through the hollow pipes.

  • A must if you visit Helsinki. The abstract monument was designed to embody the spirit of Sibelius’ music and it resembles a soundwave made of clusters of organ pipes (over 600 steel pipes).
  • It's cool looking but only worth the trip if you go to the adorable little cafe across the street that is a must visit called Regatta
  • Park is lovely. Love cycling trough here. Usually crowded with tourists wich is cool.
  • Beautiful and sturdy piece of art. Right in a large park and close to Regatta coffee shop.
  • It's an interesting monument to visit if you're nearby. Otherwise I wouldn't spend time going there.
