Finland 100 years, belated celebration with new zone Suomi100Years

Postby Munin » 11 Dec 2017, 11:01

I am sorry I did not make this zone go live on your anniversary, but I have been unusually busy and thought about it when the big day was over.

My sources tell me this is where the Finnish Declaration of Independence was signed 1917-12-06. The old building has been torn down and a new built on its place. I hope you like the spot I choose in Helsinki and will enjoy the zone even if it is a few days too late.

Keep turfing!

Thank you, a nice idea! The place is close, but not exactly in the correct place - it is the next block to the west from the zone's position that is the old Heimola building (at the very end of Kluuvikatu) where the decalartion was signed and presented to the Senate. The zone is now at the entrance of the Porthania building that belongs to the University of Helsinki.

Is it possible to move it to the correct spot or will it end up on a street with cars?

There is no open area in that spot, just walkway and street, unfortunately...

So maybe we will keep it where it is?

Please tell me it isn't actually called "Soumi100Years"...
If it is, please correct it to "Suomi100Years".
