This impressive statue outside the Kiasma museum of modern art honors one of the most important persons in Finlands history and it is definitely worth a visit. If you are interested in the history behind Mannerheim you should also visit the Mannerheim Museum, which was his home for most of his life.

Mannerheim, Marshal of Finland, was voted the greatest Finn of all time in a survey some 50 years after his death. - I know I should rate the statue, but it would be difficult not to rate it 5/5 due to the fact that it is such an iconic statue to us Finns. Unable to consider it just as a... More

...but you need to know the story behind the statue as well, he was a very important figure in the finnish history. Best thing about it is the location just in frint of the museuum of contemporary art, the Kiasma ( which is really worth a visit!)

Came across by accident. Stately and imposing. I did not know who he was until I read p on it. They should have some more info on the statues to let people unfamiliar with Finnish History know who is being honoured.

In a city of many statues it is a wonder that another statue if listed as a site. Right near the train station so easy to see if you come/ leave by train.

This the is statue of Gustav Mannerheim. He led Finland to victory and helped to build the country we have now. Statue is impressive but best thing would be to bring you the curiosity into learning the history of Finland (unknown in many countries and amazing when you learn it).

When arriving Helsinki, this statue was the first thing I noticed, and hence became my first meeting with the city. It is located beside the highway, which makes it suitable for a passing by car or bus. To me this was sufficient, and the statue is remarkable, waking my curiosity at once. Therefore I found it frustrating every time I... More
