Turku Cathedral

I have already posted a photograph of Turku Cathedral. This post is about the interior of the church. The designs inside are fascinating, very awe inspiring.

Turku Cathedral is the mother church if the Lutheran Church of Finland, and the country’s national shrine. It is also regarded as one of the major records of Finnish architectural history. The history of the Cathedral over the centuries is closely linked with the that of the people. Yet the church is no museum: it is in constant use first and foremost for divine worship, and it used for musical events. Turku Cathedral is now over seven hundred years old.
