The Old Student House (Vanha Ylioppilastalo, also known as Vanha), in the corner of Aleksanterinkatu and Mannerheimintie and by the statue The Three Smiths, is the former student house of the student union of the University of Helsinki. The building was designed by Axel Hampus Dalström and was completed in 1870. The statues on the building facade represent Väinämöinen and Seppo Ilmarinen of the Finnish national epic Kalevala. With its over 140years Vanha might be the most legendary space for events and parties in Helsinki. © ©Pauliina_Flam
