The Finnish National Theatre was founded in 1872 as the country's first Finnish-speaking theatre, but didn't move into its permanent home until 1902. The beautiful art nouveau building was designed by architect Onni Törnqvist-Tarjanne, with a granite facade and interior of marble, soapstone and wood, and capacity for 1424 people. Performances are usually in Finnish; book tickets online through www.lippu.fi.
