What to do in Töölö?
Töölö is a name that encompasses two neighborhoods west of Helsinki city center, which are Etu-Töölö and Taka-Töölö. The area was mainly developed between 1920–1930 as answer to many new residents arriving to the city, so most of the buildings are built in the Nordic Classicism style. The area is particularly popular among the lovers of architecture, arts and is also home to the Finland’s parliamentary institutions. Popular symbols in the area is the Sibelius Monument built with 600 steel pipes and the unique Rock Church which is mainly directly carved out from natural rock.
