Another "must see" while you venture around Helsinki on your holiday. This massive, dominating white cathedral is another incredible structure that greets you as you arrive in Helsinki by ship from Stockholm. This impressive church seems to call out to you to come visit and...More

Really nice cathedral from the outside, however the style inside is very severe, but still the cathedral in its complex is very elegant. Its position on top of a stairway (one on each side of the cathedral) puts it evidence in the whole square. Beautiful...More

Include the Cathedral in your tour, when we visited there was a concert about to start at 7 PM we would have loved to stay and join if we had time. We just prayed briefly. Really a wonderful church.

We didn't allocate enough time here but this place is as striking on the inside as it is on the outside. The people were pleasant and well worth the climb up the stairs!

This is one of the must-see attractions in Helsinki. Best seen from below in Senate Square, and if you're lucky it will be a sunny day. The interior of the cathedral is fairly sparse in typical Lutheran fashion and isn't really worth seeing. The exterior...More
