Equestrian statue. Located in Mannerheim Square, this bronze statue was erected in honour of Marshal of Finland Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim. Nothing out of the blue.

This is a nice enough statue of Mannerheim on a horse. The history is probably of more interest than the statue though, so it's worth consulting Wikipedia. Worth a quick look if you're already in the area.

General Mannerheim led the groups in our wars against the Soviet Union in 1930's and 1940's. We were able to keep our independence. The statue is in a very central place near to railway station, House of Parliament, the Opera and shopping area.
