What people are saying:

The Helsinki Cathedral is white, especially dazzling and beautiful under the sun. There are many people visiting and resting on the steps or squares every day. It is normal to linger and forget to return. Of course, I also like to stay here. 【Scenery】Beautiful 【Interesting】High [Price ratio] very high

Additional Information

Introduction

Explore Helsinki's famous Suurkirkko, also called Helsinki Cathedral, a neoclassical masterpiece of western and Russian styles designed by one of Finland's greatest architects, Carl Ludvig Engel. Survey the Senate Square below you from this magnificent building, originally called St. Nicholas' Church upon its completion in 1852 to honor Nicholas I, Czar of Russia, but renamed when Finland gained its independence in 1917. Discover why more than 350,000 people visit this church each year, with its distinctive green dome and colonnades and pediments radiating out in each direction. Pay a visit to each of the twelve apostles, erected in larger than life zinc statues along the roof by Engel's successor, Ernst Lohrmann.
