The Cathedral building is one huge impressive building. We were hoping to catch everywhere covered in snow when we visited in February, but the city had done a pretty good job of getting rid of all the snow by then. It's got a great view point, and when you stand in front and look down onto the square, you get... More

You need to see the plainness of this building and the ornateness of Uspenski. This is as grand a construction but perhaps has a better setting above Senate Square.

Lutheran Cathedral is one of the few really old buildings in Helsinki. Built between 1830-1852 it has many unique details that can only be seen from different angles. In the summer time people like to gather to the stairs just to hang out with their friends and family members. Some have even proposed on those stairs. Inside the church is... More

This is one of the landmarks of Helsinki, together with the Russian church, facing the harbour. This church however, is more impressive from outside, than inside. The church is is located on a hill, with white marmer, and green domes, facing the central square of the city. You can not miss this church when you are in Helsinki.

You can't miss it as it dominates the city. In the summer sitting on the stairs as you soak up the sun. See the sun set behind it from Suomenlinna. Inside is quite simple.

We only had time to walk past the Lutheran Cathedral while in Helsinki, but it's beauty and splendor was evident for all. It was fun to watch families play in the snow and enjoy their time being in the presence of this magnificent church. It is directly on the tram routes for easy access.
