Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is stunning against a blue sky from the outside. Climb the steps and go inside- it's so, so plain and simple that it's as breathtaking as the most decorated church.

Well worth a visit if you are in the city. This is a beautiful imposing building , well maintained and impressive views of the city when you climb the stairs to the top. Not lavish inside but well maintained and bright and clean.

Well you hardly can't miss this beautiful cathedral. It towers above the city. It is plain in its glory. Attend a service. I was impressed that at the end, they played a Bach postlude and not a soul moved until it was over.

One of the best cathedrals I've seen in Europe. The inside isn't very exciting (very simple in the Lutheran style) but the outside and the surrounding square is gorgeous for photos and on a sunny day the building radiates light. Always visible in the Helsinki skyline as well.

Do not expect a luxurious interior because there isn't one - this is in the Lutheran style. The real treasure here is the outside and the actual architecture; and its elevated position dominating the square. With that said though the organ is spectacular and it is still worth going inside. Interestingly, Finland as a society is becoming less and less religious but thankfully these great cathedrals are still kept in tip top condition to enjoy.

We did not have a chance to go inside. However, seeing the building as the sun set was stunning. The different colors reflected beautifully and the clock was illuminated.

Easy to spot and a good backdrop for photos.
This is a place that most of the busses stop.
We didn't go in so I can't comment on much else.
