Merikasarmi lit up in February in honour of Lithuania and Estonia

NordenBladet — The Ministry for Foreign Affairs will illuminate the seaside façade of Merikasarmi, its main building, on 16 February to mark the 100th anniversary of Lithuania’s independence and on 24 February for Estonia’s 100th anniversary.

Merikasarmi is architect Carl Ludvig Engel’s first major architectural design in Helsinki. The Foreign Ministry’s main building was completed in 1820. The illumination is a part of the Ministry’s own centenary celebrations. The façade of Merikasarmi was also illuminated in blue and white in honour of Finland’s 100 years of independence in 2017.
