“Nice statue”
Review of The Three Smiths

The Three Smiths
Reviewed April 4, 2018

The Three Smiths sculpture was made of Felix Nylund and was unveiled in 1932. Under the second world war it was damaged and You can see some small proof of that still today. The statue was donated to Helsinki by a J.Tallberg. My feeling was that this was the most popular point for Meeting People and the start of everything in the Central of Helsinki.

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.

I am a sculpture lover, so I enjoyed this artwork in the square of the same name. It is a popular meeting place for locals.

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.
