A Helsinki Classic

I guess I just have to post another photo from Helsinki on the day that the eyes of the world are looking at the city, because of the Trump-Putin summit, which takes place at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki later today. I don’t have any photos of the Presidential Palace, so here’s just one more of the most famous building in the city: Tuomiokirkko, this time seen from the street called Sofiankatu.

Helsingin tuomiokirkko (Helsinki Cathedral) is located at Senaatintori (Senate Square) in the heart of the city. A Finnish Evangelical Lutheran cathedral in neoclassical style, it was built between 1830 and 1852 as a tribute to Tsar Nicolas I of Russia, who was the Grand Duke of Finland and after whom it was also named until the Finnish independence in 1917. The church was designed by Carl Ludvig Engel, who was also the architect of many other buildings around Senate Square.
