SE­NATE SQUARE

What's On (Abu Dhabi) - - ACTIVE -

Ar­guably the city’s most recog­nis­able land­mark, this grand and im­pos­ing square is home to some of Helsinki’s great­est his­tor­i­cal build­ings. There’s the neo­clas­si­cal, Carl Lud­vig En­gel-de­signed Helsinki Cathe­dral, which stands ma­jes­ti­cally at the top of a wide ex­panse of stone steps, and the Gov­ern­ment Palace, which was first opened in 1822. The Univer­sity of Helsinki and the Na­tional Li­brary of Fin­land are also here, along with the city’s old­est stone build­ing, Seder­holm House. The lat­ter is sit­u­ated in the south­east cor­ner and houses Helsinki City Mu­seum.
