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.

The Czarina's Stone is standing in the Market Square in the front of the City Hall. The obelisk with a golden statue of a double-headed Russian eagle on the top was made to commemorate the Empress Alexandra’s first visit to Helsinki in 1833.

This is a fairly prominent monument in an obelisk form located not too far from the City Hall. The monument commemorates the visit from the Russian Royal family in 1833. It's a nice looking monument and worth a look if you're already in the area.

This impressive monument is placed on the spot where Czar Nicholas and Czarina Alexandra first set foot in Helsinki in 1833. Interestingly it was the first public sculpture in the city. It soars skywards and has at its apex a double headed eagle atop a...More
