This is a fairly large building which is used as the official residence of the President. It is located opposite the market place and is an important functional building. It is large but of simple Finnish design. When you visit the Esplanadi and the market...More

Regularly used by Finland's president, the Presidential Palace (Presidentinlinna) is a major landmark in central Helsinki and is hard to miss. Standing alongside the Market Square, the Presidentinlinna was built in 1818 and just 20 years later became owned by the state. Many grand state...More

No unnecessary ornamentation here. This is a functional building designed for a purpose rather than as an ostentatious structure to boast of power and wealth. It's an attractive building especially if you're lucky enough to be there when the sun is shining on it. Easily...More

Among those functions has been the historical use of parts as a residence for the President, while in town. For more than 20+ years that use has ceased, although there are private reception rooms used on special occasions. Other governmental functions now occupy the building.

Constructed in the second decade of the 1800s as a merchant's grand residence, after 1919 and with a new constitution, it was decided that here was the most stately palace for the President. With a few breaks, when for a variety of reasons the incumbent...More

Fitting the image of Finland, the president house is definitely low key. In fact, the neighboring Swedish embassy, designed to recall the royal palace in Stockholm is much more stately. If you want a picture of a guard, their compound is just to the east...More

You can see it, while visiting market square. It is very simple in a structure, same as it is very simply decorated inside. Nothing special to see inside.
