The cathedral sits high above the city with great views. The cathedral is the least ornate of all the religious establishments I have visited.

Stopping by Helsinki during a baltic cruise. Crowded when coming with other cruisers. Must see for a picture taking. Nice but not so special.

The architecture of the church is exceptional. Morning is the best time to go, you can experience the quiet and holyness.
