Conveniently located in the center of the city the station is utilitarian with its small kiosks and a place you can store luggage.

The statues on the exterior are the distinguishing feature of the Helsinki Railway Station along with its clock tower. 200,000 passengers pass though the station on a daily basis, making it Finland’s most-used building. I just think the statues are cool. I first noticed them in a railway ad campaign while boarding the train in Tampere. It was only when I got off the train in Helsinki that I saw these neuter figures in person.Recommended for:Art & Design Lovers

Helsinki Central railway station is a widely known landmark in Finland and the critical point of the country’s transportation system. The station is used by almost 200,000 passengers per day, making it Finland's most-visited building. The station is mostly clad in Finnish granite. The most specific features are its clock tower and the two pairs of statues holding up the lamps. Recently, Finland’s government-operated railway, VR, started using animated characters based on these statues in their advertising campaign.

This Art Nouveau landmark is both an iconic and functional structure built in the early 20th century. Its massive arched entrance and clock tower are especially notable.
