Recommendation by Lemi
This castle-like hotel and events space was built in 1908 by Finnish-Swedish architect, Karl Lindahl. It was made to be a conference center and leisure facility for middle class workers. It is most notable for its rounded silhouette and gray granite stone walls, adding a bit more romance to the already romantic Helsinki. Art Nouveau chandeliers from the 1920s still hang from the Congress Hall’s ceiling. The building is also of historical significance as it served as the Reds’ headquarters during the Finnish Civil War.
