Helsinki's Cathedral is not overly decorated, in fact is quite simple. That makes it even more beautiful. The sensation of peace and light which surrounds you, is overwhelming.

To see the tall towers of white reaching heavenward along the Helsinki harbor is inspiring. The 12 apostles overlooking the city and citizens seems appropriate. Head on into the simple but elegant edifice and feel a spiritual awakening. I would love to hear the pipe...More
