Churches in strict classicistic style are rare in central Europe were everything is "so medivial" and never replaced. At least in my perception. Hence I was realy admiring this church (Suurkirkko) build 1820-1850. In the afternoon was everything completely crowded but for sunrise only I rose.

Turning his back to the church Alexander II. Nikolajewitsch, the reforming Russian emperor from the 19th century is watching over the place (and not Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim)

The whole ensemble was planed by Johann Carl Ludwig Engel who was very influential as architect in the 19th century.

I have been in Helsinki only one day (coming from Tallinn), but I remember well this place. Helsinki is a surprising city.

Klasse, nur dein Schatten irritiert mich. Wie hast du denn da geknipst? Einhändig? ;-)

Die Frage von Jens wollte ich auch stellen...

Ich war da vor 25 Jahren bei schlechterem Wetter und fand den Platz auch beeindruckend. Recht russisch, aber das ist ja in Finnland weder Zufall noch Überraschung.

Die Helligkeitsunterschiede bei diesem flachen Morgenlicht hast du gut gemeistert, scheint mir.

Hi Christoph. 
I still have beautiful memories of Finland, particularly Tampere/Turku, Helsinki and Savonlinna which I visited in remote 1984... A youth journey! Or better an Odyssey: two days and a half by train from Venice across Germany, Denmark and Sweden to go, two days and a half to come back... Thanks for your panos that give me fresh memories of old times!!!

Dein Schatten ist das Highlight ;-)

LG & behüt Dich Gott,
