Esplanadl Park (Helsinki)

 

Esplanadl Park is leading westward from the Market Square. It is a favourite destinations of residents of Helsinki. At the eastern end of the park you can see a bronze nude statue of Havis Amanda. When it was unveiled in 1905 it drew many gasps and scolding from the conservative members of society. Its sculptor Ville Vallgren was accused of undermining the morals of the society. However today it is less insulting to the public views and in fact became one of the symbols of the city.
