Helsinki, Finland

Helsinki's Evangelical Lutheran Cathedral was patterned on the largest Russian Orthodox sobor in St. Petersburg. Blended into one, you've got a little bit of Russia, some Greece and Rome, a touch of the Vatican, and the profile and proportions of an American county courthouse. So, tell me why anyone would think this was in Finland. [2005]
