The building is quite huge compared to churches that you'll find in Finland.
Being use to visit Catholic Churches, it is impressive to compare them with this one who is Protestant.

It worth while a few minutes of your time if you are passing by Turku.

A nice walk can be done then along the river toward the port.

The whole city of Turku is streaming with life and the cathedral is a great landmark. But once you enter, the whole atmosphere changes. It's a contrast from the outside. It was very quiet to the point of creepiness when i visited. The interiors are not lavished, but contained a few key objects which take a good eye to spot. I visited the cathedral museum, which was a disappointment. It was so small and had no english explanations. Objects from the cathedral's past are displayed in no order of chronology. All I took was 2 minutes for the museum. And worst still, no photos are allowed.

Even though I am not a religious person, Cathedral of Turku is one of the most impressive places I `ve ever visited. You can almost see the bygone centaries in front of your eyes while walking towards the altar. It is a marvellous place to have a visit! :)

We had a short visit on Easter. Very pleasing experience. There is a park outside one could spend time here if the weather is good.
