⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @helsinkifacades | Helsinki. One facade at a time! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Helsinki Facades [ 395 ] ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Building: Rautatieasema / Central railway station. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Where: Kaivokatu 1, Kluuvi. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Who: Eliel Saarinen, 1919. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Why: Because these station is an iconic part of Helsinki and it is high time I share some photographs here of it with you as well! 😍👌🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Trivia: Central Railway Station was designed by renowned architect Eliel Saarinen. The station represents national romantiscm / jugenstil style and it is one of the most recognizable landmarks of the city of Helsinki. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know that the land area of the station is located on a former sea area which was reclaimed and filled in the end of the 1900th century. For this reason the whole station is founded on wooden piles, approximately 10000 of them! Only the clock tower's foundation is extended all the way to bed rock at 11 m below the surface. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The construction project was long and took 12 years in total. This is mostly because of the size of the building and the fact that the whole project was halted during the first world war and later the Finnish Civil war as well. During the first world war 1915-16 the station was turned into a hospital by the orders from Russian emperor Nikolai II. The main hall could fit almost 1000 patients in it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you know more about this building? Share it in the comments! 🙋🏻‍♂️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #helsinkifacades | #myhelsinki | #HFkluuvi

Kyllä ei tälläinen tavallinen rivikuljettaja pärjäisi Valkoiselle kurittajalle ilman kuninkaallisia huoltokuljettajia. He jäätyneitä sormia ja varpaita uhaten hakkaavat jäitä irti junista, jotta junien kulku ja toiminta olisi sujuvaa. Nosta kättä lippaan, kun huomaat junien välissä urakoivan huoltokuljettajan keltaisessa supermiesasussaan! / vet.kuljettaja Tuuli #vrduuni #veturinkuljettaja #huoltokuljettaja #veturinkuljettajaoppilas #kuninkaallinenhuoltokomppania

”Tietä käyden tien on vanki, vapaa on vain umpihanki.” Someone apparently chose to ski to the Helsinki main railway station or had skis in the train with him/her. 😀 #helsinki #visitfinland #steissi #winterfun #aarohellaakoski #poem #quotes #waytowork

Jännitystä Helsingin rautatieasemalla. Kumpi R-juna saapuu ensin että pääsis sisälle lämmittelemään.
