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.

Beautiful and located in Central of Helsinki. When you reach on the top and have a view it looks amazing. You can easily reach here by Trams or by walk. Beautiful church it is. Must visit....
It's a majestic cathedral, when you climb the steps you get a nice view of the surroundings too. Interior is interesting. I liked it.
Closer to university of Helsinki. It was late so couldn't get inside but out side view is superb. You could see the place even if u have just one hour in pocket from ur busy schedule. U could reach here by tram , bus , taxi or metro. I have preferred by walk to enjoy the breeze and chillness of Helsinki
Stunning building outside, deceptively small on the inside. To stand in the square and look up at it is a must when in Helsinki. There is often something going on in its surroundings, so don't miss out!
The Cathedral rising on the northern side of the Senate Square is the stage of national and academic festive services and one of the most popular tourist sights. The church is part of Helsinki"s Empire era centre and a landmark for those arriving by sea. It has become the symbol of the whole of Helsinki. Earlier called St. Nicholas Church and Great Cathedral, the current main church of the Helsinki Diocese was completed in 1852. The Kazan Cathedral located in St. Petersburg is considered to be the model for the neoclassical style of the church. Sculptures of the twelve apostles guard the city from the roof of the church.
