The Lutheran Cathedral in Helsinki (in Finnish Helsingin tuomiokirkko, in Swedish Helsingfors domkyrka) is an evangelical cult cathedral located in the city center of Helsinki, Finland. The church was built as a tribute to Grand Duke Nicholas I, Tsar of Russia; until the independence of Finland in 1917, it was called "Church of St. Nicholas". Not to be confused with the Uspenski Orthodox Cathedral, located very close.
The building is one of the hallmarks of the Helsinki landscape. The church that stands with its high green dome surrounded by four smaller domes; It was built in neoclassical style between 1830 and 1852. The author was the architect Carl Engel, in order to complete the urban complex of the Senate Square that Engel himself had drawn and which he had surrounded by several buildings of his own. The building has a Greek cross-shaped plant (central space surrounded by four arms of equal length) and is symmetrical in the four directions, each with its classic style colonnade and pediment.
Engel intended to locate a row of additional columns on the West front to mark the main access to the temple in this way, but such plans never came true. The building was later modified by Ernst Lohrmann, who added four small domes that emphasize the similarity with St. Isaac's Cathedral in St. Petersburg, which served as a model for Helsinki. Lohrmann also built two independent bell towers and placed the zinc statues of the Twelve Apostles at the vertices and corners of the roof.
The interior is very sober, decorative nudity predominates, broken only by statues of reformers Martin Luther and Philipp Melanchthon, the golden pulpit and the organ; in the apse, in a semicircular way with columns of Ionic order, the altar presides over a painting representing the deposition of Christ in the sepulcher.
Today the cathedral is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Helsinki. Annually more than 350,000 people visit the church, some to attend religious services but most as tourists. The church is used for regular religious services, masses and also weddings. The crypt was renovated in the 1980s by architects Vilhelm Helander and Juha Leiviskä to use it as a space for exhibitions and church events.
The cathedral is often used as a symbol of the city of Helsinki. Similarly, the Castle symbolizes the city of Turku, the Tammerkoski Bridge represents Tampere and the Jätkänkynttilä represents Rovaniemi. Before the cathedral was built, a smaller church called Ulrika Eleanora Church, took its place.
