The statues and monuments around Helsinki come to life!
For seven years already the Public Works Department has organised guided drama walks on Helsinki Day, 12 June, with actors presenting statues and monuments in the city centre.
Now these statues and monuments can come to life every day. Each presentation was filmed at the beginning of June, and the short films have been uploaded online. Plaques with a pair of QR codes have now been placed next to the statues and monuments allowing visitors to access the videos easily in either Finnish or English using their mobile devices. In the videos, actors portraying the famous people memorialised by the statues and monuments explain who they are and what they are doing here.
