"The Gingerbread House"

Restaurant Piparkakkutalo is located in a historical house. The house was built in 1906-07 as a home for merchant Anders Skogster whose department store was located next to the house. The house is designed by one of the most famous Finnish architect of that time, Selim A. Lindqvist. The house is a Jugend style building.
