Buddy Bears in the Square










We have Buddy Bears in the Senate Square in Helsinki. The Bears are life-size, made of fibreglass, painted and there are more than 140 of them. The original Bears were developed by sculptor Roman Strobl and the German businesspeople Klaus and Eva Herlitz in 2001. The United Buddy Bears have been touring the world with a message of peace, understanding and tolerance among nations, cultures and religions.
