This monument is next to another large monument dedicated to Sibelius’ life and work. It is a realistic bust that is well done. It’s nice to see if you’re a fan or near the park but I’m not sure it’s a “must see” for first...More

We visited Helsinki in early June for the second time and decided to walk to the Sibelius Monument which took about 30 mins from the Market Square where our ship was moored. Our stroll up Mannerheimintie took us past various theatres, the railway station and...More

This monument is definitely beautiful, but it’s not really close to a lot of other attractions, so if it’s out of your way, I don’t know I’d bother, but if it’s on your way, go for it!

This tribute to Sebilius (1865-1957) by Finnish sculptor Eila Hiltunen is at the Sibelius park in the Töölö district. It is on the Red Bus route & is an interesting sculpture but it would have been more interesting had it been more interactive or if...More

This monument to Finland's favorite composer was controversial, when it was first unveiled. In fact, they made the sculptor add the seriously cool "molten" silver bust of Sibelius to it. The pipes are not all solid, you discover, when you get close. Our guide encouraged...More

That is the way I would describe this unusual art setting. It utilises plenty of steel but does not appear to tell a coherent story.

The Sibelius Monument isn't in the city centre. It took me about 20 minutes to walk slowly from the Finlandia Hall. It's an impressive piece of sculpture. Nice to admire it both from a short distance and under it. Worth the trip.

Revisiting some old places since I was last here, in Helsinki and I forgot how far away from the city centre it is. If you don’t mind walking, it’s 20/30 mins to get there from the Rock Church. I do recommend you catch the 24...More
