Helsinki Architecture

I think that I spent most of my time walking around looking at the top of buildings and doors.  The architectural style in Helsinki is unique, exciting and incredibly beautiful.  Helsinki’s Finnish National Romantic movement, influenced by Classicism and modernised, flourished in the early years of the 20th century. Finnish Art Nouveau, also known as Jugend, drew a great deal of inspiration and influences from the Kalevala, the Finnish national epic. The best way that I can describe it is a bolder, more masculine, slightly brooding, art nouveau.
