It is a must to visit! The design is fantastic. So white and glamorous! Take the steps up and enjoy the view! Visit inside the church! The paintings are beautiful. It is free of charge!

The cathedral was beautiful, peaceful and the views were amazing. The cathedral has some stunning art work and the organ was absolutely amazing.

Nice and iconic cathedral, popular for visitors even in the evening. Can be reached by tram. Statues are in front of it.

This is the landmark in Helsinki. I cannot think of any other place that every tourist should not miss but this place. The square is usually full of tourist buses in the summer.
