This building is former Finnish National Opera. Now it has dance and theatre performances. It is very beautiful inside. Red velvet and gold. It is originally built for the emperor of Russia. But the building is in bad condition and needs total renovation.

Much more beatiful than the modern National Opera house, but far too small for major performances. Actually I do not know what is done inside there nowadays.
