This is an excellent University. You should try visit it. The main library is amazing. You can ask for a guided tour. After that you must enjoy a finnish coffee on the cafe.

A really beautiful building, the façade is stunning. There's a great little cafe here too. Apparently the building houses some of the most up-to-date facilities and resources for students anywhere

When I was student, I learned to know the university inside and outside. It is marvelous place to have a education. Usually a tourist looks at the building outside. The masterpiece of new classical architecture by Engels. So pure classical example. I love those Ionian pylons and the fine pediment.
