There is really nothing to see here. It's just a busy intersection and should not even be listed on TA. There is however an intersting modern arts museum on the square (never mind the Mannerheim statue - it's just a statue among many others in Helsinki

This is a place to walk through if you are visiting Kiasma museo. Parlament house is under rennovation near by. You may have 'meet me here' appointment. Everybody knows the place.

It's good to pass by and look, take some pictures if you're passing by... There's many shopping centres around the square.. I did not know who was the guy on the horse, especially that they only write the names.. It would be nice if they write a briefs description of such statues in the city in ENGLISH so tourists know...

On the side of the main thoroughfare of Helsinki, Mannerheimintie, there is a small triangular area in front of the Kiasma modern art museum that houses the famous Mannerheim Horse Statue. Now Mannerheim is an important guy to Finns. And he fought in Poland and Russia too, and against Russia. Your guidebook will probably have a section all about this... More

Marshal Mannerheim statue in Helsinki. Sculpted monument of Marshal of Finland Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim sitting on his horse. Choice was justified not only by the fact that Mannerheim was a horseman, but also by the fact that the world equestrian statues erected to the rulers and the large military commanders. The statue was unveiled 1960 on Mannerheim's birthday. Helsinkis... More

... albeit one where you can see a few attractions all at once! The photo shows the statue of Mannerheim himself, which is usually covered in pigeon poo. Please note, the location shown on the map is completely incorrect.
