In honour of the EU-China Tourism Year the City of Helsinki will illuminate one of its most important architectural landmarks, Finlandia Hall, in red.
Lighting the Finlandia Hall is a great culmination for the Chinese festive season starting with the Chinese New Year celebration organised jointly by the sister cities Helsinki and Beijing on February 15th.
Finlandia Hall is a masterpiece by the renowned Finnish architect, Alvar Aalto (1898-1976). This congress and event venue is a unique combination of an all-embracing aesthetic vision, distinctive atmosphere and functionality. The location in a park by the Töölönlahti bay in the centre of Helsinki provides excellent surroundings for the festive illumination during the EU-China Bridge of Light -event.
