    Helsinki Cathedral

    Unioninkatu 29, 00170 Helsinki, Finland
    0.06 mi from Senate Square
    7 reviews

    Perhaps the most well-known landmark in Helsinki, it's conveniently located in the middle of Senate Square and Market Square, a Finnish Farmer's market where fresh berries and reindeer meat abound. Awe-worthy for the religious and a-religious alike, it's topped with a majestic green roof and gold cross.

    Lutheran Cathedral

    Even though the gift shop was being worked on when I was there, I enjoyed the visit a lot. The cathedral is beautiful and the steps are great exercise. I like the statue of Alexander II in front. I also even enjoyed the street performers as much as the beautiful dome inside the cathedral.

    It sounds stupid to give a tourist information center a 5 star rating but this one is exceptional! They have so much information available, everything from free maps to pamphlets for neighborhood walking tours to trips around the area along with free internet access and loads of brochures on just about anything (even coupon books!). Stop in and discover something ...

    Scenic Senate Square is a must-see in Helsinki. There is free wifi in the downtown area and good transport links in all weather. The steps to the cathedral are slippery in snow and ice, but the square is beautiful in all seasons.

    Probably a very fun place to hang out, right by the harbor, except it was raining when I stopped there, so I rushed through it a bit. Lots of deliciously smelly food stalls and artisanal tents. Still made the time to grab a plate of 'lax' - grilled salmon with a side of pommes frites. Manna from heaven when tired ...

    Visible from great distances this picturesque cathedral does not blend with the rest of Helsinki's architecture but stands on its own. If you want an unforgettable experience and don't mind standing for hours on end and not understanding what is said, attend a service.

    A traditional department store that also contains a large grocery area. The large quality selection would put most American grocery chains to shame. The cheese section alone is a major distraction.
