The Cathedral looks more like a small palace. Beautiful, all white, very majestic. We spent quite some time here admiring the architecture. Simple, neat, peaceful inside. One can sit on the steps outside and admire the city life. Must visit.

The inside of the Cathedral doesn't match the impressive outside architecture but is worth a peek when you're stopping by. It does have a beautiful massive organ.

I attended the 10 mass in Finnish on Sunday morning, choir was wonderful. It is nice to experience something different

The view of the city from the top of a long flight of stairs is lovely and informative. And you don't have to climb the stairs. Instead walk up the street on the side.

The interior is stunning in an austere way. Dramatic contrast to the Russian Cathedral which is all clutter.

Beautiful building, fabulous skyline and great photos, that's the outside, on entering, absolutely boring, very austere with very little to see. Obviously this is the Lutheran way and is to be respected, but as a visit, not much to see.
