Railway Station and Its Surroundings

Asemakatu 2

The railway station and its surroundings – the Station Park and Tapionpuisto Park, as well as the residences of railway officials with other buildings in the area – are associated with a wider and well-preserved building stock in Asemakatu and Mariankatu, dating back from the turn of the century. Buildings in this area have been designed, for example, by Otto Dahl, A.A. Tapio and F.H. Lindholm. In addition, one of Salo’s landmarks is connected to the railway station area, the old grain silo of Salon Seudun Osuuskauppa, the drawings of which were made by the design office of Keskusliike Hankkija in 1935, 1941 and 1950. Salo railway station and its surroundings form a unified commercial milieu of the old township of Salo that diversifies the layered nature of the cityscape. It is one of the best preserved entities of its kind in the entire country and included in the list of built cultural heritage sites of national significance as defined by the Finnish Heritage Agency.
