Parliament House


Home > Helsinki > Parliament House

The building of Finnish Parliament was finished in 1931, after a architectural competition and seven years of construction, on the hill over today Mannerheimintie.

The architectural style of the building combine neoclassicism with early modernism. The fourteen high columns are only simply decorated, and geometrical, granite façade makes monumental impression.
Each o five floors are connected by marble staircases and unusual, paternoster lift. Every one has different plan and functions, the main parliament session hall is located on a second floor.
As a still working Parliament, it may be visited only with several guided groups, or during some sessions, which are open to public.
