Mikä on Kivimiesten oikea nimi?

The granite station building designed by architect Eliel Saarinen in the early 20th century is particularly well known for its clock tower and the Torch Bearer statues, also known as the Stone Men, designed by Emil Wikström. The construction of the clock tower was completed in 1919, but it wasn’t until 1922 that the clock was installed at the top of tower.

Kello aina oikeassa ajassa

Have you heard the myth that the clock of the tower is one minute early so that people would have more time to board their trains? In reality, the clock is connected to the master clock of the Finnish Transport Agency, and thus it always displays the official time of Finland.
