About Helsinki Cathedral, Helsinki
The Lutheran Cathedral or the Helsinki Cathedral, which is known as the Tuomiokirkko in Finnish, is the perfect amalgamation of simplicity and elegance. The grand church with its somber white exteriors and neo-classical domes is certainly a very interesting to see.
Completed in 1852, the church stands tall in the center of the city of Helsinki. The altar and the various decorations in the interior of the church too aren’t extravagant but are nevertheless stunning. A visit to the church is a serene and wonderful experience.
There are a number of stone steps that lead up to the majestic cathedral where you can just sit and watch the sunset or feed the pigeons. This site is certainly a must visit for the culture-seeker and the spiritual traveler.

Helsinki Cathedral, Helsinki Reviews - Write a Review
It is a very beautiful cathedral also known as white church, a must visit place in Helsinki. Loved it, very neat and clean walls and very beautiful from inside as well. Many people visit and don't go inside, no doubt that it is beautiful from outside an is at very good location, but I would suggest to go and see from inside as well and spend couple of minutes there, it's beautiful from inside too. Entry is free of cost so just give it a look.
Go as soon as possible in this place, because today I was there and Christmas fair is really beautiful 😍🤗.
In the heart of Helsinki .. easy to get to by tram .. neo classical architecture... was made in the 1850"s ... was made as a tribute to the Grand duke of finland .. Quite lovely
Impressive Lutheran church dominating the view on Helsinki's city center. The interior is as simplistic as you would expect from a Lutheran church, but with clear and strict forms. Huge flight of stairs leading up to the entrance from the Senate Square. Great view on the city from the entrance.
Mind blowing cathedral, Amazing on the inside and well decorated. Can be seen from many areas as is on a hill. Looks stunning from every angle, beautiful place feel like heaven
