Helsinki, Finland: Government Palace

Finland isn't a huge country, so it doesn't need to fill Helsinki with government buildings. But the one shown here is the important one: the Government Palace.

The Finnish Senate moved in to that location in 1822, and the building has gone through a variety of changes over the years. Still, the space in front of it is still known as Senate Square.

These days, the Prime Minister works out of that building, and some other government agencies such as Justice and Finance are also there.
