lutheran church helsinki

Helsinki's Lutheran Church with its vast steps.

 

helsinki railway men

The icon of Helsinki: The magnificent pink Finnish granite Art Deco/Nouveau Helsinki Central Station with its imposing two pairs of gods holding lamps. I absolutely love this building. I have no idea why, but these railway men seem to capture something of the essence of Nordic Finland. So much so I spent around half and hour taking photographs of them from various angles. I think the accompanying clock tower, which looms large when viewed from certain standpoints, adds to the overall drama of the building.

tallinn church estonia

The glorious gateaux-like Russian-influenced onions of St Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, one of Tallinn's most striking buildings. Luckily, the clouds dispersed long enough for me to snap this picture - the vibrant blue sky complementing the cathedral.
