Occupying a commanding position on the northern side of the Senate Square, the Helsinki Cathedral has been a prominent landmark in the city’s Empire Era center since it was built in 1852. The church was designed by architect Carl Ludvig Engel and is essential viewing for visitors interested in art and architecture. The central dome of the church is supported by corner pillars and rises to a lofty height of 80 meters, allowing natural light to pour into the interior, which is based on a typical neo-classical equal-arm cross design. On the roof of the imposing church you will see 3-meter statues of the twelve apostles standing guard over the church and the city.
