Tilkka -Former Central Military Hospital


In a country with a conscript army, most Finnish men have either been treated at Tilkka or at least heard stories of the protected functionalist building with distinct semi-circular balconies.

After 2005 Tilkka was converted to a nursing home for elderly people following the outsourcing of special healthcare. At the entrance large KSS acronym (Keskussotilassairaala, central military hospital) still reminds of the history.
