  Helsinki Tuomiokirkko

This very impressive church is one of the three fantastic creations of the Senate Square. It was desingned by Carl Ludwig Engel in the 1830s. After Engel's death Ernst Lohrmann made some exchanges to the plans by adding more towers, massive steps and the apostole sculptures onto the roof. Building took 22 years but the final result was worth it.

Directions: Senaatintori [Senate Square]

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
