In November, Mariankatu 3 is open to the public to experience the architectural history of Helsinki and get a glimpse of its contemporary Jewish life. 

The visitors can tour the house freely and enjoy a cup of coffee. Presentations will be held in Finnish on the History of the building, and about Kruununhaka and Suomenlinna in Finnish-Jewish History.

Completed in 1765, Mariankatu 3 is one of the oldest stone buildings in Helsinki. It originally functioned as a customs and auction house and later housed the police parking control unit and the Finnish Literature Society. Chabad Lubavitch Finland purchased the building in 2015 and it has since been fully restored to house a Jewish cultural centre.

Mariankatu 3 shares a close connection to the Suomenlinna Sea Fortress - it was designed as part of Marshal Augustin Ehrensvärd’s plan to fortify Helsinki. The plan was never realized, but the historical connection remains: interestingly, Suomenlinna is where Jewish soldiers serving in the Russian army lived, and it is where the first Jewish prayer room in Finland was established.
