The Finnish Parliament's exterior is certainly far from pleasant or inviting.
The dense Corinthian pillars are more typical of Soviet architecture rather than a Scandinavian one.

The parliament building has a somewhat harsh exterior . The pillars almost reminds me of the bars in a prison cell. However it's the official house of government business so I guess it was Mena t to reflect the seriousness of it and not a named attraction for visitors. To enter you must book a tour in advance or forget getting inside. Other than this take a photo and move on like I did.

The Parliament building sits a bit on a hill and is an impressive facade. There are some nice statues outside. It’s not a huge building but it is an important one.

A striking building in the Koala district and for such a large structure, it only has 200 members of Parliament which was surprising.
The building looks a lot older than it is but is an estimated 100 years old.
Well worth a look if you are visiting this beautiful capital city.

A rather intimidating looking building from the exterior given this is the seat of power for Finland. You cant fail to see it if in the Toolo district of Helsinki.

The Parliament of Finland is the unicameral supreme legislature, founded on 9 May 1906. The Parliament consists of 200 members, 199 of whom are elected every four years. In addition, there is one member from Åland.

The Parliament House is the seat of the Parliament of Finland. This landmark building is located in Helsinki, in the district of Töölö by the main street Mannerheimintie. The building was completed in 1931.

The main architect was Johan Sigfrid Siren who designed this red-granite building in a stripped classical architectural style combining Neoclassicism with early twentieth-century modernism. The facade is lined by fourteen columns with Corinthian capitals.

The Parliament House is the seat of the Parliament of Finland. It is located in the district of Töölö. Construction began in 1926 and it was completed in 1931. It consists of five distinctly different floors. It's very impressive!

A very interesting building. Very massive on the outside, but the interesting thing to see is the inside, you have to book a tour well in advance though.

The building was fully renovated a couple of years ago so it is in really nice shape.

Well worth a visit.

This is in Mannerheimintie Street a main street of Helsinki. It is nearby the National Museum of Finland, Amos rex Museum and Forum Shopping Centre. It presents Finnish history from the Stone Age to the present day. There was not much of it free and most you had to pay so I did not see too much! The building itself was rather heritage though

The impressive red granite building dominating the city center was designed by architect J.S.Siren and opened to real need in 1931 as the Parliament had for years held sessions at various locations. Representing the popular Finnish Classic style of the first half of the 20th century the whole facade is formed by an imposing colonnade and stairs where urgent demonstrations are often held. To visit the recently restored magnificient Art Deco interior booking in advance is needed, but might prove to be difficult due to the popularity of the free tour.
