“Just a statue, albeit a big one”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

If you are a statue hunter, then this is probably five minutes walk from the central station.

Not much more to say about it, its not in the main area so I'd recommend seeing it by chance as opposed to searching for it.

“Covered in pigeon poo”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

The great man sits astride his horse with dribbles of white poo all over him. I mean, you have to be a bit irreverent, it's just a statue after all!

“just statue among many others”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

It's a nice statue but nothing monumental... you can find statues of old leaders in every corner of the world. So i really wouldn't even call it as "attraction". There is much more to see in Finland than boring stuff like this.

“Right in from of the Kiasma museum”

Huge statute of Mannerheim in-from of the Kiasma museum along mannerheimintie, the biggest and probably longest and popular Finnish street in Finland. A statute to behold.

“Marshall of Finland riding in a corner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

Still proudly on horseback, C.G.E Mannerheim was the supreme commander of Finnish troops in WWII. The statue itself pays due respect for the hero but is regrettably cornered by the terrible modern art museum, Kiasma.
