This church was one of the main attractions in the city. We actually came here since my friend was getting married here and I was the Best man. The outside was very impressive and the interior was more humble.

A must see when visiting Helsinki. Situated in Senate Square it is easy to get to, the hop on buses all stop here. There are many steps up to the cathedral but worth the climb as you get rewarded with a lovely view. Sitting on...More

People with mobility issues and wheelchair users would find the Cathedral too difficult to visit. We did not find an easy access so one of the party could not visit inside.

It's worth seeing the cathedral if you're in the area. It's pretty on the outside but quite austere inside. Very peaceful though

A beautiful building which can be seen from most places across the city. A good meeting point. All the tourist buses start from here with the harbour a short walk away.

Feeling peaceful, clam and secure walking inside the church. It’s landmark place here : must go list. Outlook building maintenance is perfectly good, pure white paint without dirt. Bought two handmade pendants each cost Eur2x, as gesture support. Washroom facilities available cost Eur1
