The outside of the cathedral is impressive - and the inside is very simple. I have never seen pews with gates/doors on them, so that was a first. It is very light from the upper windows, and the lack of paintings with the bright white walls echoes the light all throughout.

It's very beautiful and impressive cathedral
I visited there firstly after getting Helsinki.
Because it is too attractive to escape from it.
Inside is simple different from the cathedrals I have visited in Florence.
where I stayed before coming here.
It 's good to sit on the stairs in front of it and look down at the surroundings,
people gathering at Senaatintori.

Great church on a hill...really quite an imposing landmark and a must visit. The interior is plain and solemn...nothing wrong with that....still extremely charming.

It is beautifully situated and worth the visit. The views of the city are worth the walk and getting there is easy.

The massive building is very imposing from its sheer size and architectural style plus it is placed at a top with huge steps leading to it. The whole square is nice and with the cathedral in its background makes for a great view but compared to this, the interiors of the cathedral is pretty plain. The place also happens to be one of the famous landmarks of Helsinki and can be visited for this purpose alone
