The Helsinki train station is an impressive sight in downtown Helsinki. The clock tower and the four huge stone male figures that guard and light the entrance really grab your attention.
The building was designed by Eliel Saarinen and was opened for train service in 1919. It has been rennovated and inproved over the decades, and in 2008 it seems to still be a very modern, very efficient building.
The exterior of the station is granite as are the four male figures that were carved by Emil Wilkstrom. The figures have few clues to their identity. They have no clothes or ornaments. There is what looks like a wave motif from their xyphoid processes to the bottom of the statues. If you know who they are supposed to be, I would be interested to learn.
