Senate Square remains one of the main points of interest in the city. The square is surrounded by beautiful buildings, the majority of which were built in the first half of the 19th century. There are also some historical monuments on the square, and in its center you can see a monument to the Russian Tsar Alexander II. The building of State Council, which was completed in 1822, is the most striking architectural place of interest in Helsinki.
Uspenski Cathedral is another prominent religious attraction. The age of the cathedral is around 150 years. The building is made of red brick, and the halls of the church are decorated with exquisite icons and elegant gilded iconostasis. Rock Church is, without a doubt, no less attractive. The church is located in Töölö district. Built in 1969, the church is one of the most original monuments of modern architecture. Carved in the rock, the hall of the church is distinguished by special acoustics. A dome made of copper and glass is considered the chief ornament of the church.
