“best cathedral ever”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

There are no words to explain the feeling when you approach this catedral. No matter what religión are you or what is your citizenship, it takes your breathe away.

“Impressive”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Impressive structure on top of a hill - you can't miss it. It adds character and charm to the city . It was a large and imposing structure in stark contrast with its fairly bare interior.

“Great view from the hill”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

The Luthern Cathedral is located only a block from Market Square and the surrounding shopping area. Do not be deterred by the many stairs up to the Cathedral from the Plaza. When facing the church, walk up the street to the right, up the hill. There are only a few stairs from the street entrance. While the interior is somewhat austere, it is still worth the effort.

“Beautiful and dramatic landmark”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Everyone who visits Helsinki should visit this beautiful church, gleaming white, looking over the city from its elevated platform. As with all Lutheran churches, the interior is not at all ornate but lovely in its simplicity.
