“2 minute walk from city centre.”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Closest metro station is Kaisaniemi but it is also walking distance from City centre or Kamppi. If you are in Helsinki and you don't visit this cathedral, then you have all the reasons to feel guilty about it. This building represents city of Helsinki. It may have the name cathedral but most people just visit to see it from outside and admire the beauty of this beautiful building in the heart of city.

“Centrally placed - do go visit”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Centrally placed, dominating the skyline when seen from the water, this church is well worth a short visit. Very clean, Nordic/Lutheran interior, letting the architecture do the talking. Great view over the square.

“a huge Cathedral in the heart of Helsinki”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

It was a huge surprise to see such a big building (and more over it is a religious building) in a city that is pretty intimate and low-development. I celebrated a New Year eve on the square in a front of the Cathedral. It was nice :-)

“Symbol of Helsinki”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

First thing what you see if you are arriving to Helsinki by ferry. Easy to visit by walkin or by tram, and really worth to go.

“Lovely”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

A landmark building that cannot be missed.

In line with the Lutheran style it is rather simple but this adds to the uniqueness of it.

Have a look inside, don't just look at the exterior.
