Helsinki has so many churches from different eras where you can meditate, join events, watch concerts, or just marvel at the variety of architectural styles. From cathedrals that dominate the skyline to the many smaller churches that are scattered around the city, you will find churches for a large number of denominations of Christianity including Lutheran, Orthodox and Catholic churches.
This Church Tour is ideal for guests who want to see the various beautiful cathedrals and churches and to learn about their significance for the Finns. The tour highlights include the Orthodox and Lutheran Cathedrals, St John’s Church which is the largest stone church in Finland, as well as the non-denominational Chapel of Silence.
