We accidentally got off the bus at the wrong stop and saw this monument. It was different but nothing special.

The monument was described as controversial - I neither liked it nor understood its relevance to Sibelius, in the bust of him to the side of the monument he looks quite glum, poor chap.

The picture above is the highlight of this park. It and one other sculpture are the only notable attractions.

Okay, this is just a statue. But it's not like an old lookalike pic of a an old guy. It's a wonderful piece of art even if you have never even heard about Sibelius (if that is the case I recommend you to learn more about the music of Sibelius, if it was on Die Hard 2, it has to... More

An abstract art work dedicated to Sibelius is a must visit in this place. Build by using huge pipes this structure is great work. A must see in Helsinki.

And weird. The winning artist from the competition for the construction, build this monument in her apartment one pipe at a time. Wish it played music, they added the mask of Sibelius to help everyone know who the monument honored.

I really like the monument, but try to view it either early morning or late in the day. When we got there around 14.00 it was overrun with tour buses filled with tourists. For us it was a quick in and out visit. Nice park though.

One of the regular tourist trip stops. 2 minutes here is all you need, its a bit underwhelming with nothing else to do in the park
