It is a nice church that is a landmark feature in Helsinki. However, it didn't offer anything that overly impressed me. Would definitely walk by it if visiting again or with someone who has never been.

The first place to visit in Helsinki, good views but the steps were a disgrace, so much litter from tourists who sit and eat their lunch etc there.... the inside was fairly plain and unimpressive after the outside...

Towering over the square is the Lutheran Cathedral. In stark contrast to the highly decorated Uspenski Cathedral, the interior of this building finished in 1852, is austere and unadorned. The emphasis is obviously on the pulpit and the music from the massive organ.

A lovely cathedral that is a necessary visit. The church is very bare inside, which is a contrast from so many other cathedrals. The church is beautiful and a nice place to take a break.

Helsinki cathedral is one of the most popular places to visit in Finland. About 5-10 minutes walk from the railway station. You can also use tram if you don't like to walk. It is a very nice place to spend hours sitting on the stairs...More

Admired this Lutheran cathedral from the outside. Beautiful landmark, crowded area with lots of tourists and buses.

Very unembellished cathedral with no information in other languages. Impressive building but that really doesn't need more than a few minutes to view.

I only saw the building from the outside. It looked very impressive. White! Nice stairs to climb. They gave a good overview when standing upstairs

A beautiful building that is worth a walk to see this and the surrounding area. The setting and the entrance from the side square and up the steep steps is quite a site. At night the building is beautifully lit and if you are here...More
