Description

This brilliant, white-walled, gold-crowned, neoclassic church was built in the years between 1830 and 1852. Carl Ludvig Engel designed the church and the buildings in square around it.

Most of the people in Finland are Lutheran by faith, and this building is still used as a Lutheran church. I am told that it is also the most popular tourist attraction in Helsinki.

The statue in the square is Czar Alexander II of Russia. Finland prospered during its time as a Russian grand duchy, and so the statue remains standing almost a century after Finland declared its independence from Russia.
