Over the centuries both Sweden and Russia vied for possession of Finland. The Swedish crown held Finland for hundreds of years and during this time, the Swedes built many castles: Turku, Hame, Viipuri, Raseborg, Kastelholm, Olavinlinna and Kuusisto. Today the National Board of Antiquities aims to preserve Finland's architectural heritage and a number of places in Finland are UNESCO World Heritage sites. These include Rauma, an old city constructed in wood, the Verla Groundwood and Board Mill and Petajavesi Old Church. After gaining independence from Russia in the early twentieth century, Finnish architects became influenced by European styles of architecture. Erik Bryggman (1891-1955), inspired by Italian architecture, designed hospitals, schools and power plants. Around the same time, Alvar Aalto (1898-1976), originally interested in the Neoclassical Movement, went on to become an influential figure of the Modern Movement. Aalto designed civic centres, churches and houses.
