  • Parliament is now being renovated, so there is nothing to see that. Forests, gullies, collated steps ... Next store expensive Finnish down-padded coat)))

  • Nice to visit in the old job. Meeting room booking was smooth, the service always plays early, the food is good, and not mmitään.

  • Finland's Parliament building is very high. It is designed in classical style. Modest decoration. On the front there are sculptures. Build only decorating column. In Helsinki, there is a more beautiful building. But this is the biggest.

  • Been there in the past and it was amazing. Too bad the construction is taking forever
  • Nice simple building, reflective mood of the Finnish people.
  • Been to this place both inside and outside. What's special about it is the statue immediately behind the chairpersons' seats: mom's buttocks facing the audience.
  • old place
  • never gone, but looks cool

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.
