Helsinki Cathedral, Helsinki
A product of Russian expansionism in the region, Helsinki Cathedral was built by architect Carl Ludvig Engel as the pinnacle of the city's Senate Square. The cathedral was constructed between 1830 and 1852 in the neoclassical style as a tribute to Tsar Nicholas I of Russia. After Finland gained independence in 1917, it became a Finnish Evangelical Lutheran cathedral. Take in views of the structure's distinctive green domes and white pillars and walk through the church to appreciate its Greek cross layout. Over 350,000 tourists visit this cathedral every year.

This is one of the most famous place in the beautiful city of Helsinki. The amazing outer and simple inner architecture is amazing combination. It's one of the most famous place to sit here, relax and enjoy as well. You can even see lot of birds flying here. It's nice place to enjoy.
This is much better inside than it looks from the outside. Sone really nice statues and the building has balance plus great acoustics. The artwork that is in there is also pretty good but mostly plain painted walls.
