Light of the Day: Art Illuminates Helsinki With Ghostly Light Sculptures

The capital of Finland is a ghost town. Sort of.

Now that winter has come, light, for the most part, has left Finland. Night descends earlier and earlier, leaving the country with roughly six hours of vitamin D a day. And when night falls the city belongs to the ghosts. 

“They were here,” a new Alexander installation at the Helsinki City Museum, running through December 31, features historic character formed out of light sculptures, and the result looks like something out of the Haunted Mansion at Disney World in the best way possible.

Top hats, rolling hula hoops, angels, and more populate the creepy exhibit. No Hatbox Ghost, though.  Check out some pictures and book your flight to the world’s most active ghost town today.
