  • This is a very famous statue of 3 blacksmiths forging iron in the center of Helsinki, right on Mannerheimintie in front of Stockmann department store.
  • They remind me of Winston Smith from '1984'.
  • This reminds me Winston Smith of 1984.
  • Three smith's statue (Kolmen sepän) is a masterpiece of Felix Nylund, erected during 1932 via Pro Helsingfors foundation. Although it was one of the major attractions in the past, now it is overshadowed by Stockmann, which is situated immediately next to it. It is still a good place to take selfies, especially for tourists ;)
  • A central piece of public statues in Helsinki. More information of statues in Helsinki through HAM-website.

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.
