Helsinki Parliament House Having 14 Corinthian Columns

Helsinki Parliament House

Ancient Greek architecture never ceases to amaze me! Whether it be, Doric, Ionic or Corinthian style of architecture. It seems Romans were just as fascinated as I am. For this reason, they have been using this architectural style ever since they discovered it. The Corinthian columns being one of those engrossing hallmark styles. Something that drew my attention when I first laid my eyes on Helsinki Parliament House, Finland’s official administrative building, featuring a grand ‘Red Kalvola Granite’ framework adorned with 14 tall Corinthian columns. A 20th-century neoclassical architecture designed by renowned architect, Borg Siren, who surprised everyone by introducing modern art into an administrative building of 200 seats.

Today, Helsinki Parliament House is the city’s most treasured building. In fact, it’s amazing to learn about all the key-political-moments, it has survived during the continuation wars. Take a tour inside this 5-story administrative building, and you will find its walls, ceilings, paternoster lifts and marble staircases resonating a historic vibe. Each element will transport you back to the 18th-century Finnish era when political heritage began to bloom with glory. On top of that, Borg Siren’s lavish interior designing is cherry on top, along with, the praise-worthy granite framework. You will find many political tales unfold, as you walk from the large reception hall to the lobby, to the plenary chamber.

If this post interests you then let me tell you that Helsinki Parliament House is situated in Mannerheimintie, and is surrounded by an extensive line of restaurants and shops. I highly recommend the Farang and Storyville restaurants in the area. Helsinki Parliament House sees the maximum number of tourists in summer. Which, is why the administrative building offers free guided tours all throughout July and August.
