On our recent visit to Helsinki, we decided to do the English tour of the Finnish Parliament House in Helsinki. It was an extremely interesting and informative tour and one that leaves visitors with a very positive impression of the Finnish form of government and...More

The building itself wasn't that jaw dropping, to be honest (big and impressive, but not very ornate on the outside), but I did really enjoy when all the odd performance artists arrived on bikes and in identical suits and moved in slo-motion over the steps....More

The building itself looks very majestic and looks very nice. It sits alone, not far museum. Only issue I had was unable to get a nice picture from across the roads because there are too many lampposts! haha

Wau, it seemed special to visit the parlament of the most democratic and free country of the world (well, perhaps after Iceland...). More than the building itself I was very interested to hear from the political system. The tour told more about the building itself.

Looks marvelous inside and outside. Free admission and there are guided tours in English. We too enjoy the beautiful garden and was amazed by the sakura trees donated by the Japanese government.

This is a big monolithic structure, some say like a Greek Temple, but it looks like a faux classical Soviet style building to me - not very interesting really except to have a photographic record.

The Legislature was founded in 1906. We stopped by here as another magnificent building presented itself as we were walking around. There are many beautiful gardens on the property for picture taking. We didn't have a tour of the complete inside. We just saw the...More

Very stunning Parliament building both inside and out. It resembles a Classic Greek temple. which is most appropriate. If you get a change a tour of the facility would be most helpful.

I visited the Parliament House 5.5.2018 when the Parliament was hosting an open house. One of my motives for visiting the attraction was to see this fully renovated Parliament House - as Renovation of Parliament's properties was done during the years 2015-2017. I saw the rooms where the MP's,...More

Resembling a classical Greek temple, due to its many grand columns and steps this was built in the 1920s. It is free to enter and there are tours in English at 11AM and 12PM on Sat, 12PM and 1PM on Sun.
