Can't miss it, for you will stumble upon it

Even for a lover of Protestant churches, this interior was rather meagre. A sharp contrast with the mighty exterior. Free or charge. However, one can pay a 5 euro 'donation' if you like. Can't go lower than five though... which is more than I would have liked to donate.

(Not so) Interesting place
Aug 2021 • Solo
It is the most interesting and famous place in Helsinki. On the other hand, it is not so interesting. Just a "church" .. In general, historical places in this city are quite lacking in comparison with Srockholm, Prague or Dublin. Or there are some, but they are not promoted.

A Magnificent Work of Architecture in Central Helsinki
Jun 2021
I beg folks to at least pass by this stunning architectural marvel in downtown Helsinki and take a pic or two—need not enter at all. The spacious outdoor plaza area in front of the cathedral is perfect for people-watching, photo-snapping, and relaxing. When I visited later in the evening (around 9pm), the area was completely deserted…while I’d have thought it would’ve felt eerie, the vibe was actually impeccable for me, since any ambient noise and crowds were nonexistent. The opportunities I had for pictures were second to none.

Considering it’s free to check out and truly beautiful, I can’t recommend the Helsinki Cathedral enough. It’s safe, clean, and amazing.

Key landmark of Helsinki
May 2021
This is a very nice place to visit and is a key landmark of Helsinki. It is also worth going inside.

The dress code, or bad dressed people outside and inside this cathedral is a real concern. The under dressed should be banned from visiting.

The steps

There are shady characters in the steps of this cathedral. People drinking beers. Have some respect for the place.

Only from outside
Apr 2021 • Family
The place looks likeable from outside. Inside, there is nothing. It was such a bummer. Do not go inside.

Mmmm... Very beautiful outside
Mar 2021 • Family
It’s one of these places that is enough to look at it from outside... Inside you probably wouldn’t find anything interesting unless you’ve come for a prayer or to stay on your own and think...

If you’re looking for beautiful interiors and a pleasant atmosphere you’ve probably come to a wrong place...

But from outside it is an eye catcher

Helsinki Cathedral
Jan 2021
At first glance it looks like a White House in US. It's very plain and simple by European standards though. Even the little church in my neighbourhood has more curves, bells and whistles on. But it carries the same design philosophy and totally in tune with Finland's general architectural theme. Nothing striking, good looking or exceptional but practical and functional.
