Helsinki, Finland: Mannerheim Statue
Here he is on his horse, ready to head for battle. Mannerheim served as the commander-in-chief for Finland during World War II. But he must have faced other battles as Finland's sixth president. As you'd expect, this is sacred stuff in Finland. The statue went up in 1960.
Mannerheim was voted as the greatest Finn in history. He's even been on a stamp - in America.
