The centenary of Finland’s independence culminates in Finland’s Independence Day, on 6 December 2017.
The celebrations start on Independence Day Eve, on 5 December. At 2 pm the staff of Paasitorni had a cup of coffee and cake together in honour of the 100-year-old Finland. Beginning 6 pm, the illuminated Finnish flag will be flown in our flagpole on the top of the tower of Paasitorni. Our historic venue, turning 110 years next year, is illuminated all year around when dark, bringing light to both everyday life and festivities of Helsinki.
