Very nice church in Helsinki

Very nice old church with lots of stairs to climb. there was a great christmas market outside the church when we were there. It had plenty of handmade goods on sale.

Dominates the skyline and surrounding buildings. Certainly is white and very impressive when floodlit.

A bit of a climb. There was a wedding about to start and thus really only saw the outside. We poked our heads in the door and it seemed amazingly beautiful.

The landmark of Helsinki overlooking the old part of the city from the hill. It us one of the first buildings you see when arriving by boat. Stairs in front of the massive white building are popular meeting place, especially on summer time. Cathedral square is busy around the year with events, happenings, concerts and Chritmas markets. Must see when... More

This is a "must visit" location. Easy to get to from the main part of town or a short stroll up from the quayside markets.This is also a great spot to catch the hop-on-hop-off busses. The adjacent cafes serve a decent coffee as well.

The cathedral is really so beautiful! We were awed by the cathedral from afar. There are many steps leading up to the cathedral, adding to the magnificence ... must visit! It's within short walking distance from central railway station.

Many steps to climb to get to the top of the Church but worth every steps. Inside is simple yet beautiful

As soon on every picture Helsinki shows I needed to visit this. It is a very beautiful building with great architecture. You can make a lot of cool travel photos here, also from the square. Too bad the inside of the building is not that interesting, but definitely worth a visit!

My family and I visited this cathedral in November 2016. The interior of the church is very pretty. Take a few minutes outside to look over Senate Square (a public square in front of the church). We visited at the end of November, and there was a very large Christmas tree on display in the square. The cathedral is visible... More
