Photographer's Note

I have already posted a photo of this white cathedral but it was rather gloomy. Here I worked hard to make it a bit more colourful, if possible in a very cloudy gray day.

Helsinki Cathedral (Finnish: Helsingin tuomiokirkko, is the Finnish Evangelical Lutheran cathedral. The church was originally built from 1830-1852 as a tribute to the Grand Duke of Finland, Tsar Nicholas I of Russia. Rather funny that a Luther church for a tsar.
Today, the cathedral is one of Helsinki's most popular tourist attractions. More than 350,000 people visit the church each year, some to attend religious events, but mostly as tourists.
It is interesting inside as it has almost no decorations. Just the organ , a pulpit and an altar.
