If you ever visit Helsinki, check it is not a public holiday… this is the mistake we made. On Thursday May 17th it was Ascension day. All the shops were closed, the stunning Russian cathedral was closed also, but we did manage to see the Lutheran Cathedral.
As you aproach Helsinki from the sea. The Cathedral is visible as you come into the harbour.
I loved the simplicity and peace of the cathedral in keeping with the Lutheran principles. Nothing to distract you from the purpose of the place.
