We were in Helsinki for the day and one of the sites on our to-do list was this cathedral. We knew going in that the exterior (including the stairs leading up to it) would be much grander than the minimalist interior - this is a...More

Nice and iconic cathedral, popular for visitors even in the evening. Can be reached by tram. Statues are in front of it.

it’s so majestic. There are a lot of stairs to get up to the church. It’s a beautiful church inside. Free to get in. It was certainly great being there on new years eve.
