After walking around the inside of the Turku Cathedral, we headed outside to journey down the river to our next destination.  The square in front of the cathedral is beautiful and spacious.  It helped that we had a beautiful day.

Turku CathedralThe cathedral sits right next to a park that sits along the river, giving the whole area a pleasant feel.

And when you turn around in the square and look at the cathedral, you can’t help but say “wow.”

Turku CathedralIt’s just huge.  That’s the best way to describe it.  You can see it from just about anywhere in the city.  And that’s the way it was designed.

Regardless, the outside of the church, in many ways, is just as impressive as the inside.
