I have no idea. This clearly seems to be against the rules of Wikipedia
to allow only for content which is also free for commercial use. Maybe
you can ask at some Finnish Wikipedia general discussion page?

It would of course also be ok to upload photos of monuments if the
copyright has expired, i.e. 70 years after the creator has died.
