Say your prayers at Lutheran Cathedral

Helsinki’s skyline is dominated by the Lutheran Cathedral. This cathedral was built between 1830 and 1852 and was called the church of St. Nicholas. It has a Greek cross shape and has a shining white beautiful exterior. It takes time to view all the statues of apostles and the colonnade on each façade. The view from up makes you feel as if you are standing on the edge of a cliff. However, the interior is a little Spartan and so the chances of taking impressive pics is little less. One should visit this cathedral while a concert is going on. It can accommodate approximately 1300 people. One shouldn’t miss the crypt which mainly holds exhibitions. There is also a café nearby that usually remains very crowded.
