“Don't ever miss it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

The atmosphere around the Senate Square is brilliant with the huge Helsinki Cathedral looming in the forground and the administrative buildings surrounding it. You can spend hours over here by just sitting down on the steps and watch the day pass by - such is the electrifying atmosphere here.

“Great open air market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Great stalls for fresh food. Stalls for souvenirs a little kitsch. the market starts ealy and goes all day. So if you want photos of the square without the tents be there on Monday.

“Nice square, cafes and cathedral, lots of activities.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

There's always something going on in the senate square and the white Helsinki cathedral is impressively located at the top of steep steps. Lots of nice photo opportunities to be had. Some nice cafes in and around the square.

“Beautiful square at the foot of the Cathedral”

The square is towered by the Cathedral and is surrounded by historic buildings. Very nice view from the steps of the Cathedral church.
