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.

One of Helsinki's must visit public sites, a tribute to their most highly regarded composer. Unusual in that you can walk up and touch each element of the sculpture. Set in a small park it is no more than a brisk and easily navigated walk from the city centre or a short ride on public transport.
The wind crashes over the tops of these large open-ended pipes, creating a haunting but subdued dissonance. Many of the pipes are within reach; I highly recommend inserting your head into the base of a pipe. It amplifies the sound of the monument and highlights a single tone.
