Welcome Reception hosted by the City of Helsinki

Thuesday, October 20, 2015 at 19.00 - 20.30 in City Hall

Pohjoisesplanadi 11-13, Helsinki - Map

City Hall is located in Helsinki's neoclassical centre, in a block bordered by the Market Square, the Senate Square, Katariinankatu and Sofiankatu. City Hall overlooks the Market Square, while the 18th century Bock, Burtz and Hellenius houses face the Senate Square on the opposite side. The City Council meets in a new building which is in the centre of the block.

City Hall was originally designed as a hotel. After Helsinki was made the capital of the Grand Duchy of Finland in 1812, it needed new and better facilities for entertaining, especially since the Bock House, which had been the centre of social life up to then, became the official residence of the Governor-General. Tsar Nicholas I also took an interest in this project. A good location was available to the south of the Bock House, next to the harbour.
