Really pretty

Great view from the top of the stairs and inside so pretty plain but nice. Was lucky enough to see a wedding the day we went.

If you need to check off the attractions, the exterior of this edifice is interesting. The interior is uninspired, as was the intend of the Lutheran anti-Roman architects it seems. So, nice to walk to from downtown and convenient to catch the Tram #7, but should be considered the "basic" basilica.

The outside is spectacular, the inside modest and calming. Lots of steps to climb to get in but well worth it. Lovely square to sit in afterwards. Don't leave Helsinki without visiting it.

This is a beautiful building, it is nice to watch a wedding in here with different rituals from other religions. Please have respect for people attending a religious service!

The senate square is impressive specially because of the Lutheran Church. The church is seated on elevated grounds and a steep staircase is leading you in. Inside the best item is the rosette stain-glass window and some other stain glass windows, otherwise not very special. Worth the climb but very short time visit. In the square the besides the church... More
