Hi,

I see a guard standing daily (rain or shine) outside a light blue building on Mariankatu (I think I got the street name right). What is this place? Do they have a change of guard? Is the public allowed to take photographs of the guard?

Thanks.

Answer

Hi!

Main guard (Päävartio) for finnish defence forces.
It's ok to take photos or at least many tourists do. The change of guard is quite boring and not as flashy as for example the british counterpart. On coldest wintertime the watch person is inside looking out from the window.
