Fennia building provided entertainment and celebrations throughout the ages

The golden age of the Fennia building, which was completed at the end of the 19th century on the edge of Helsinki Railway Square (Rautatientori), began in the early 20th century, when businessman Karl Edvard Jonsson from Sweden opened the Grand Hotel Fennia. The charming hotel with its spectacular winter gardens became one of the most significant meeting places of the high society of its time.
