10 Clock Tower of the Central Railway Station in Helsinki, Finland

If you enjoy architecture, you soon sense something special about Helsinki. About 600 of their buildings were constructed during the late 19th century and early 20th century in a form of Art Nouveau named Jugend. It evolved into a unique Finish style called National Romantic. Most of these structures were built with massive blocks of Finish granite. This gorgeous clock tower at the east entry to the Helsinki Central Railway Station was part of this trend. Eliel Saarinen, the architect, originally proposed a National Romantic design. When he was forced to change, he created a new direction with stunning results. This style is now known as the Late-Jugend period.
