Impressive on the end of the staircase, but the inside is very spartan. the square in front of it is always full of tourist buses, but it's huge, so no problem, it just ruins the view a bit..

This is a must see if you visit Helsinki. The square is always busy and the cathedral steps full of people. Just a beautiful place in the middle of a fantastic city! A visit at night is peaceful and spectacular!

This cathedral is enormous and very beautiful. We were here in the evening and watched the sun set whilst sitting on the steps in front of it. Lovely experience!

This is it, that's how you recognize Helsinki. The exterior is impressive and the steps can serve as makeshift picnic seats. Bonus tip: there is an unusual cafe right under the cathedral called Cafe Krypta, the entrance situated at the back, on Kirkkokatu street.

Beautiful church inside and out. Nice to be in a church that emphasizes simplicity and light...you WANT to be there not feel it is a duty to be there.
