Central Railway Station, Helsinki, Finland Vintage postcard via Anu
There’s no way I could post Finland and not show this. There are hundreds of great photos of the “Kivimiehet” (“Stone Men”) out there (see one here), so decided to pick this old postcard instead. Meanwhile, don’t know if this is true or not, but often called Finland’s most visited building, as the station handles 200,000 people a day.
