Situated in the intersection of Aleksanterinkatu and Mannerheimintie, is a popular meeting place, while also being an icon of Helsinki. It hasn’t always been this easy for the iconic naked blacksmiths... In WW2 the base was damaged during a bombing, the anvil of a smith...More

Near the railway station this statue is hard to miss and well worth seeing - is in a busy area - the statue would not be something to travel to just to se it but if in the area it is well worth seeing.

Located close to the Stockmann Department Store, the monument represents honour and dignity with three men conveying hard work and labour. The statue is quite weathered but found almost right in the city centre.

The Three Smiths is probably the most popular meeting point in Helsinki. It’s in the heart of the city and very easy to find. The statue was revealed in 1932. It was damaged when Helsinki was bombed in 1944, some shrapnel damage still visible.

this statue is almost located at the center. you can take this as main point when you are walking around. There were different street musicians every other day when we were there. A live point of the city.

It's a marvellous sculpture and a grand exemplar of art for passers-by to admire and enjoy. It depicts the dignity of manual work, to fashion goods. The activity of the figures is striking.

A rather interesting statue you are likely to see if strolling around Mannerheimintie of Helsinki. It has great symbolic meaning according to Rick Steves.
