Helsinki Cathedral, Finland

If you visit Helsinki, you simply can not miss this huge landmark.

Helsinki Cathedral is a large church located in the center of Helsinki, next to Senate Square. It’s one of the main individual tourist attractions and it’s common used as a symbol of Helsinki in brochures and postcards. Over 350 000 people visit the church per year. It was designed by Carl Ludvig Engel in 1819, and construction begun in 1830.

In front of the church there’s large stairs, where people tend to sit on during hot summer days. Sun shines directly on the stairs all day long as a gentle sea breeze refreshes the people. The Senate Square below is used to organize various kinds of events, and the stairs act as huge auditorium.
