Helsinki's Tuomiokirkko cathedral

The neoclassical Lutheran "Domesday Church") in the gracious, laid-back Finnish capital was finished in 1852 and is notable for its striking white, green and gold exterior, contrasted with a simple wooden interior. It's perched on top of a long flight of steps, which in the summer become the city’s favorite public bench: a place to have some fresh Finnish strawberries and catch street buskers doing their thing. With a Greek-cross layout, its interior is elegant but simple in the way many European Protestant churches tend to be.

It's one of Tripatini member Shiv's 7 Gems among Europe's Lesser Known Cathedrals and Churches.
