This church is on almost all the souveniers becuase it probably the most dramatic building in Helsinki. Worth a visit up the steps. It's fairly modest inside, but can't complain when it's free.

This is a major site for all the hop on hop off buses. it's a very large square with ample shopping all around. Helsinki is NOT one of my favorite cities on the Baltic tour....this rock church and Olympic stadium is about it, but i guess that easy to figure out when a swimming hall is a top site according to TA.

We took the shuttle bus into the centre of Helsinki from the port and found that as it was the Midsummer Festival all the shops and lots of restaurants were closed. However despite the fact that there was an organ recital in the Cathedral we were allowed in to the very simple interior - but it is Lutheran so what do you expect!! The outside is stunning though.

This great iconic marvelous architectural building, right in the heart of city is must visit for every Helsinki Tourist. Excellent exterior, simple interior, very good for camera's eye and almost every important tourist attraction is within walking distance.

The Cathedral is an iconic building in Helsinki as no matter where you are you can see it clearly, the exterior is stunning and visually impressive and the interior is basic yet impressive and also somewhat relaxing.

There is also a little shop that belongs to the cathedral just outside of it that sells refreshments and other souvenirs.

Well worth a visit if in the area.
