  • It is open from 10 until 11 o'clock. So you can visit it only for one hour. But it looks nice from the outside :)  more »
  • Truly and amazing house of God! The outside is something to see! Then the inside is a must see place! You need to stop in for a visit!!  more »
  • Unfortunately it is only open on weekdays 10-11 in the morning and i didn't get to go inside. But it's very beautiful on the outside!  more »

  • Very beautiful neogotic cathedral. It was built in 1897 and seems that the arquitect was inspired by some German neogotic churches. It has a huge organ that was finished in 1898 and they are renovating it now. It has a capacity of 1200 though before was 1400, but when renovating it they decided to give more space for sitting on the benches. There was a very attentive woman explaining the church to everyone that stepped in. Very good impression of the visit, totally worthy (and for free)
  • The church, designed by Josef Stenbäck, was completed on 1897. It is a neo-Gothic, tiled wooden church. The altarpiece is Jesus on the cross, painted by Pekka Halonen. Next to the altar are the stained glass paintings of Antti Salmenlinna. The church accommodates 1200 people.

  • Beautiful church in the very center of the pedestrian street. Close to many parking spaces.

  • It's a great-looking church, even though it's already accustomed to it. The outdoor area of the church is also very cozy, a place to spend time in summer.
