Helsinki Cathedral - Review

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. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Helsinki itinerary 2 days.

Helsinki Cathedral, Helsinki Reviews

Google+
  • There are always iconic buildings in every city. Some that live up to their "billing" and dome that disappoint. In the case of the Helsinki Cathedral, it does live up to its billing. For most drama, approach it from Senate Square as it sits on the top of a hill from that viewpoint. (Approaching it from other directions doesn't do it justice). The Cathedral dominates Senate Square and is resplendent in white. It is adorned with monumental steps and flanked by Soviet-era style buildings. Any visit to Helsinki has to include seeing this place. A beautiful iconic building, inside and out. Make sure you look out towards the harbour once you're up at the entrance.

  • A must visit Helsinki destination, a more traditional church compared to the others you'll visit. The outside is gorgeous, the inside is even more amazing. Check out the golden chandeliers, look up to admire their beauty. The altar is quite impressive, even if understated compared to the ones you'll see in Rome. :)

  • Inside you can almost feel like there are eyes watching you when standing in certain places. The architecture is well thought out. Unlike some other churches near by this one does not have an entrance fee altho being more prominently displayed. Calm and quiet. Nice to step in if the city noise has been a drag.

  • This is an amazing building from the outside. Unfortunately it was closed when we got there, so I couldn't see inside. But I enjoyed walking around the exterior and appreciating the architecture. There are several steps to get up to it (roughly 50 I'd guess) which are quite steep. But atop the steps you can look out over the city. Surely worth checking out if you're in Helsinki. Also check out the library next door. Free to go inside and look around at amazing architecture and beautifully displayed books.

  • What's good The cathedral is huge and located right next to the busy marketplace. What's not good The interiors are simple and ok. What to do Take pictures with cathedral at backdrop. Visit in summer and enjoy the sunshine.
