Helsinki’s Lutheran CathedralThe Lutheran Cathedral's neoclassical white columns and green domes were commissioned by a Russian czar, but the churchgoers inside pay homage to a religion introduced by Finland’s first overlords, the Swedes.
The cathedral was finished in 1852, its steep staircase designed as a towering testament to God’s supremacy. Inside, a sparse interior keeps worshipers’ attention on the sermons, not the decorations.
