This whole series of Parliament House is excellent. I really like them all.

Thanks a lot, Panos.

Ken, it is nice to hear that. I tried to capture this building from a little bit unusual angles because it's so usual to see it in the panorama format.

Very nice piece of architecture! It really looks like some Egypt palace or monument. Is there a story behind this architecture, I mean, some reason why it was built in this particular style?

Sixten Imgs on January 27, 2013

I think it was meant to last for ages and match with the neoclassical style. A lot of the older architecture in the center of Helsinki has been built with that style. Anyone who knows better is more than welcome to challenge or correct this instantly written theory :)

Your photos and Patricks comments intrigued me enough to look it up in Wikipedia. I think your shots should be added to show another, fresher perspective.

Very friendly words, Ken. Many thanks.

Christos, I'm glad you think so.
