Finland - Helsinki

Sibelius Monument

Northwest of the city center, Sibelius Park is best known for the Sibelius Monument, an attractive stainless-steel sculpture by Eila Hiltunen that memorializes Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. Much photographed, the monument is almost considered a symbol of the city. The park, which is more like an arboretum, is even more scenic than the sculpture and is especially pleasant in early summer.
