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

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.

Beautiful In It's Simplicity
Oct 2020
We walked up to Senate Square and the Lutheran Cathedral from visiting the Orthodox Cathedral and the contrast was striking; all the complexity and grandeur of this cathedral is in it's position - at the top of a long, steep flight of stone steps on one side of the Senate Square - and on it's exterior; because the inside is almost stark in it's simplicity.

White walls, simple pews, a complete sparsity of icons, paintings, statues only serves to highlight the stillness and spirituality of this beautiful space. The ambience and intention of the building speak for themselves and don't need any embellishments.

A truly lovely place to visit, to sit quietly, to reflect, to pray.

Helsinki Cathedral

I was suprised that it is always open, it is very sober compared with other churches. From the top of the cathedral you can have magnificent view of the harbour... everything is close by.
