Helsinki Cathedral

This architectural work is one of the oldest buildings in Helsinki and is one of the brightest representatives of neoclassicism.

An interesting fact: every year, on December 13, a girl with a retinue, dressed in a snow-white outfit, which symbolizes Saint Lucia, comes down the steps of the cathedral. This tradition pays tribute to the memory of the Christian martyr who lived in Italy in the fourth century. This ritual is part of the culture of the Finns.

Every day at the fair you can meet Santa, also for children there is an opportunity to ride for free on an old Christmas carousel.
