Building façade is decorated with many small Windows, components on the form of a cross. It is the inner vestibule through these Windows receives natural light. The basic size of the Church takes a big hall for services-irregular shape with choirs-balcony, in addition to the upper lamps (design Aalto), area is illuminated by a large number of Windows of different shapes, located at various altitudes, and glass fragments of walls on 1 floor. Excellent acoustics in the Hall: I was at a concert in the framework of the Organ Festival-2016. The Church, around the statue of Christ, there is a cemetery 600 graves of Finnish soldiers killed during World War II. The sad picture-ragged lives mainly 18-25-year-olds.

Of a hill is the old cemetery is now known as radio Hill with the oldest radio antennas in the city, beautifully illuminated at night. The other is the hill with the Church of the cross, the Ristinkirkko. The market square is located at the junction of these two hills of Tori. The important place, where you can find your way, Orient, or certainly people takes the information in every Finnish city. It goes up Mamma Maria the Mariankatu North, close to the restaurant of the Tori, looking the famous Church himself, slightly behind the trees of the Avenue, designed by Alvar Aalto. One of his last works, by his 2nd wife assembled. The brick facade with the cross, made out of 52 small square Windows, is beautiful, especially when the a dark because the parish often burn the light in the Hall, to show the effect of the cross. A long staircase to reach the square in front of the Church, architecturally deeply influenced the forecourt. On the left is the cemetery with fallen soldiers from World War 2. Also easily large doors curly in the surface to reach the vestibule - and behind the Church space. A very precisely guided space disposition, a more or less triangular. The floor is broken as designed, part of the floor is the ship, the second area of highly folded the gallery. The organ at an architectural central area of the organ is built on the side of the interface. As the well-known Finnish organist Johanna Torikka explained on german and English the organ has some peculiarities, which are due to the architecture and not the organ. So the same organ in one of the acoustics would be better more vertrauendem design as a concert instrument such as worship organ. And cheaper maintenance. In the short organ works by J.S. Bach, C.M. Widor, and Oscar Merikanto showed up the organ as a variable and versatile in all styles, good tool.show original

AnonymousDownright horrible restaurant. The main course is always the same, the vulgar, thin cardboard, in order to keep the bread, which is nothing less than to queue up each time. With the food offered on the wine, which is under the values and tastes of the old grape. In order to apply for a meal, keep the usually wait and listen for any medieval magic sorcerer time over a long period of time ... and the courts are very poor, isn't it a little ergonoomisemmaksi do, back to selkähän in a seated position goes. The menu is a true original, popular varieties of fictional names, such as "Jesus ' blood" wine and "rutikuivalle" in the body of Jesus in the bread. However, I will give 2 stars because the food is free and it gets, among other things, the gluten-free (although not in that little palate-kiduttajassa probably it may be no more gluten micrograms) and the wine gets alkoholittomana. Pretty arkitehtuuri and well lit restaurant, but the food is worth it.show original
