The Charm of Old Helsinki

Influenced by Classicism and modernised by Functionalism, Helsinki is also known for its Art Nouveau architecture. The Finnish National Romantic movement flourished in the early years of the 20th century.

Finnish Art Nouveau drew a great deal of inspiration and influences from the Kalevala, the Finnish national epic. This style is also referred to as Karelianism, after the region where the tales in the Kalevala originated.
