This is a lovely sculpture, located on top of an obelisk in the middle of the market.
Its golden color is particularly beautiful at dusk.

While walking around Market Square, I saw a man taking a picture of this narrow, tall statue. I also took some pictures of this statue, not knowing what it is for.

Thanks to some TA reviewers here, I learned about its purpose/significance.

The obelisk with a gilded two headed eagle on top commemorates the first visit of Empress Alexandra of Russia to the Grand Duchy of Finland in June 1833. On the back ground stands the Swedish Embassy combining our two past monarchs in the same picture. Nowadays artisans selling handicrafts have their stalls around the monument.

On the Kauppatori/open market close to the Harbour you will see the Czarina s Stone(Obelisk) it was erected in 1835 as a memory to the first visit of Czarina Alexandra. It is a tal slim monument in red granite.
In 1917 the glob and the 2 headed eagle was removed , but later the monument was restored.
It is the oldest public monument in Helsinki.

Not much to say about this one, it’s a statue situated in the Market Square. Nothing special about it.

To commemorate her first visit to the Finnish Grand Duchy as Finland was called under the Russian rule a granite obelisk with a gilded two headed eagle was erected in honour of the Empress Alexandra. The descriptions were written in Finnish and Latin which was exceptional as the official languages were Russian and Swedish. After the Revolution in 1917 the monument was partially demolished and re-erected only in 1971.

Observed the monument as we walked towards the outdoor market. And that is about it all really. Nice enough.

It's a nice Obelisk/monument but nothing special. Check it out and read the history when you are in the Market, but I wouldn't go out of my way to go see it, just if you are in the area.

This statue is located in the center of the Market Square in the city to celebrate the visit of the Russian Tsar’s to visit to Finland. All stone statue with a two headed eagle atop of it in gold. Can’t miss it in the square and picture taking is an option if interested. I like statues that acknowledge historic events so I would definitely recommend a visit to this one on the harbor fort or the city.
