Minimalistic Lutheran decor inside, interesting shows at times in the crypt. A view to the sea from the stairs. A must to drop in to at the senate square.

The Helsinki Cathedral, in the center of Helsinki is a stunning church that take your breath away. If you have the opportunity, take a look inside!

One of the most remarkable landmarks is the Lutheran Church on the Senate Square. It has not much decorations like Catholic cathedral or Orthodox church buildings. Just simple and clean but it eloquently explains the essential difference of reformation. Only faith!

The Dom is really gorgeous. Especially on a sunny day the white building in combination with the blue sky is romantic and wonderful.

What a beautiful Cathedral...the steps that lead up to the cathedral can be breath taking and it is certainly worth a climb up the steps to the cathedral. Take some tine and sit on the steps, see Helsinki from a high point. Do check the opening times

This is such a beautiful building. Great for photo taking. It's worth a stop. It's free to see it and walk up the stairs. Go during the week so that it's not populated with tourists. Plus it's close to a Karl Frazer Cafe.
