Finlandia Hall (Finlandiatalo)
Finlandia Hall, one of the most famous sights in Helsinki, has an ideal location next to a beautiful park and bay at the heart of Helsinki, very close to the Parliament and the National Museum . It can be reached easily by public transport, but you can also use the 600-vehicle parking lot. Alvar Aalto's famed creation houses meetings, conferences and concerts. Vital meetings between Russian and American leaders were held here during the Cold War. Nowadays, the building is mostly used by the Philharmonic and Radio Symphony Orchestras. The annual Jean Sibelius Violin Contest is also held here, and behind the hall there's the yearly Naisten kymppi (Women's 10K Fun Run). Concert tickets can be bought from the box office. Half-hour guided tours of the hall are arranged in Finnish, Swedish, English and German. To book a private group tour, contact Info Shop in the main lobby by phone or email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
