The Belgians take on the Finns in their last group game which is taking place in St Petersburg
Composer Sibelius is perhaps Finland’s most famous non-sporting son (unless you know better?) and fittingly he has his own monument.
It is sited in a public park (fittingly called Sibelius Park) in the north of Helsinki close to one of the city’s many waterways.
His most famous work is Finlandia, a nationalistic homage to his country. The sculpture is by Finnish artist Eila Hiltunen and is titled Passio Musicae. Hiltunen’s aim was to capture the essence of the music of Sibelius.
I have been to Ghent only once, on a business trip whilst I was consulting for Thomas Cook.
I managed to sneak an hour or so to rush around the city and saw enough to make we want to return one day.
The train station is pretty impressive too.
