“The adorable White Lutheran Cathedral of Helsinki!”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

It is always a great pleasure to see this famous White Cathedral of Helsinki (Tuomiokirkko). It is beautiful, elegant, powerful, stunning, huge, admirable and a lot more. The most famous landmark of Helsinki. It is definitely worth seeing!
Fun facts: On the southern side of the church (seen from the Senate Square), there are over two thousand big stones used for the steps! That's amazing.

“classic elegance and peaceful”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

it stands so majestically above the square but inside it is Lutheran - understated and barely adorned. But so plainly lovely and yes quiey.

“Rainy Day List !”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Tremendous architecture, wonderful Art Deco embellishments. Otherwise a bit ( forgive me ? ) Lutheran boring. THe view from the steps is fabulous and IF you get the chance to visit the chapel to the right of the steps ( as seen from the bottom ) it's one fo the most beautiful churches I have seen in my life. Light, airy and fabulous ... but NOT for those who find stairs a bit difficult !
