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. Put Sibelius Park & Monument into our Helsinki vacation builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
