The Lutheran Church, the Helsinki Cathedral, dominate the skyline of Helsinki old town and is located on the north side of the heart of Helsinki's Senate Square. A great place for a few moments of tranquility and to start your walking tour of Helsinki

Steep steps, a lovely view, a serene but beautiful interior. Do not miss this edifice! The altar and organ are magnificent to see!

If you like baroque churches with lots of altarpieces and monuments, this is not for you. If you like minimalist beauty give it a try and enjoy 10 minutes in peace.

You cannot go to Helsinki without visiting this monumental cathedral next to Senate Square. This is basically the Eiffel tower of Helsinki (so to speak) & it is more magnificent than you could ever imagine. Unfortunately countress tourist groups at all times inside the cathedral...More

The dome of Helsinki is inspired from Russian architecture, planned and created by German architects, for the evangelican-lutheran people of the Helsinki area. It is beautiful from the outside, puristic inside. The iconic white walls shine in the sun over the city of Helsinki.

Very nice from outdoor but don't waste time coming in, it's completely empty, no paintings, no frescos, nothing

My family went to a boys choir concert in this cathedral and it was stunning. The cathedral is beautifully lit up at night and is a great place to visit. But if you have a chance go to a concert in this building.
