Sibelius Monument, Helsinki

#2 of 249 in Parks in Finland
Stroll by the sea at Sibelius Monument, which commemorates Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. Designed by Eila Hiltunen and completed in 1967, the structure features over 600 steel pipes fused together with a bust of the composer to represent the music of Sibelius. Photograph this 24-ton work of abstract art, which is also one of Helsinki's most popular tourist attractions. Some say they can hear music playing here with the sound of wind moving through the hollow pipes.

  • It amazing that the US does nothing like this. Finland is way ahead of most of the world in regard to art.  more »
  • Intriguing Soviet era monument. The highly asymmetrical design is in contract with the uniformity and symmetrical Modernism architectural style of Helsinki at large. The Monument also serves as a throwback to Finland connection with the Soviet and Russia, and the complexity nature of the relationship.
  • Monument itself is fine. But lack of nameplates is awful. Who was this person? What he was famous for? This is why you need a nameplate on a monument.
  • Nice park with a couple monuments. Don't know if other monuments were covered under the snow but it doesn't take long to see everything.
  • Really nice monument in Helsinki, little bit far away from the city centre, But with the park it is in, it's worth to see it.
  • Pretty nice monument dedicated to music. A tourist attraction at the Helsinki city, inside a beautiful park.
