Karin, a fellow blogger from Finland, North happened to be in Helsinki the day before we arrived so she stayed overnight so she could meet up with us.
The sculpture of the naked blacksmiths stands in the little square on the corner of Mannerheimintie and Aleksanterinkatu in the centre of Helsinki. Rumour has it that if a virgin passes a hammer will hit the anvil.
The sculpture was created by Felix Nylund in 1932. It survived the bombing in the Continuation War.
Next stop, Stockholm.
