The Helsinki Cathedral (Helsingin Tuomiokirkko) is a really magnificent-looking classical building, particularly impressive on a fine day, against the blue sky background. Bring your camera and take some stunning pictures! Inside, it looks rather plain compared to some famous European cathedrals, but there is a...More

This Cathedral is right in the middle of Helsinki, and in a way dominates the city. Any body visiting Helsinki eventually visits it. It is a beautiful Cathedral, with its pure straight lines, the whiteness of its walls and its great domes. It is certainly...More

One of the landmarks of Helsinki, not to be missed. Actually I think the surroundings are nicer than the church itself which is not that spectacular on the inside. When weather is nice the stairs leading up to the church are very popular to enjoy...More

Worth visiting if you pass as is an impressive building. Not that interesting or ornate inside but pop in for 5 minutes if you have time.

From its location it dominates the area. Inside isn't as spectacular as you would expect but its worth a visit.

You can't miss this Cathedral, it is a prominent part of Helsinki skyline. Magnificent on the outside but very plain on the inside.

A beautiful place in the heart of Helsinki. This cathedral is the city’s symbol located in the central square. So beautiful 😍

But rather sober insider, could have been a bit more explanation, for example its use for official occasions

Sorry Catherine, but we visited Helsinki in August and didn’t think to ask about choral services.
