The Beautiful Helsinki Cathedral

Helsinki Cathedral is the Finnish Evangelical Lutheran cathedral of the Diocese of Helsinki, located in the centre of Helsinki, Finland.

A distinctive landmark in the Helsinki cityscape, with its tall, green dome surrounded by four smaller domes, the building is in the neoclassical style. It was designed by Carl Ludvig Engel as the climax of his Senate Square layout: it is surrounded by other, smaller buildings designed by him.

Costumed Picasso in Helsinki

Across Europe, in all the major cities, you will find some people in eye catching costumes according to a certain theme offering themselves to be photographed by and with tourists for a small fee in return. In the above picture, I observed this man dressed as Picasso and he stood on this small podium for hours and hours amazingly without moving more than posing for a picture for tourists who paid a Euro or for blocking other tourists like me from photographing him.

This picture was taken when I was in Helsinki, Finland last year. This was outside the Cathedral.
