Lutheran Cathedral – Helsinki, Finland

 The Lutheran Cathedral with its prominent green dome and the 12 apostles overlooking the city and harbor sits at the top of the stairs above Senate Square. After Finland became a grand duchy of the Russian Empire, the czar sent architect Carl Engle to Helsinki to create a Neoclassical square. The Cathedral is Engle’s architectural masterpiece that was completed in 1854. The huge staircase leading up to the Cathedral is a popular meeting and tanning spot (during the limited sunny summer days) in Helsinki.
