  • 是芬蘭最重要的研究圖書館,在行政上芬蘭國家圖書館屬於赫爾辛基大學。在2006年8月1日之前,芬蘭國家圖書館被稱為赫爾辛基大學圖書館。芬蘭國家圖書館是芬蘭歷史最悠久和規模最大的圖書館。 
  • When I got out of the door of the Cathedral, it was on the side of the square, the street will be opposite the library. After the futuristic libraries in Minsk and Riga in the shape of a diamond and wave this House with columns looks modestly. Classical building designed by Engel as the rest of the Senate square: the Cathedral, the University Senate. Library appeared as a University book depository, and only in 2006 it was renamed the national library. Inside you can visit for free and absolutely free, no library card not required nor special papers and documents. Only are asked to drop off jackets and bulky bags at the cloakroom.

Secondly, you find yourself in the historical building of 1845, architect Carl Ludvig Engel, Nicholas I asserted the project, and the building was a political idea: architectural means of emphasizing political relationship with Russia, specifically, with St. Petersburg. Annex "Rotunda" 1902-1906 (architect Karl Gustav Nystrom). Thirdly, you have the opportunity to read a book in Russian. Books of pre-revolutionary publications are on the shelves and you can easily take any of them, sitting behind a table and read. From 1809 to 1917 years Finland was part of the Russian Empire as an autonomous Grand Duchy of Finland. During this period, Finland won the right to keep their own copies of all printed matter published in Russia. Thanks to its many revenues from Russia, in Finland formed one of the largest collections of pre-revolutionary literature into Russian and the languages of other ethnic groups of the Russian Empire. All of these books to this day used by scientists from all over the world and manufacturers of facsimile editions.
