Helsinki cathedral (Tuomiokirkko) by German architect CLEngel. It is the most famous building in Helsinki, also known as the white church. It’s a Lutheran church in Senate Square. The church is located on a height of more than 80 meters above sea level. Built in 1852, the milky white church supported by Greek columns and the bell tower with a light green bronze dome stand out from the rest. The magnificent imposing manner and exquisite structure make it a classic in the architectural history of Finland and a landmark of the city of Helsinki. Most of the pictures I saw before
were in winter, when snow covered the square in front of the church, and warm lights came on, making the whole church a holy place. In the heart of the old stoned senate square stands a bronze statue of czar Alexander ii, built in 1894 to commemorate the extensive autonomy he granted Finland.
In front of the

cathedral is the senate square, flanked by the cabinet building and the university of Helsinki on the east and west, and not far to the south are the presidential palace, the Supreme Court and the city hall.
