located in johannesparken in helsinki close to the historic scool Läroverket för gossar och flickor ("Broban") nice area for walks in Helsinki. I was christened in this church 1959, so a must for me...

I found this place in Tripadvisor and decided to visit with my mom. And i'm very happy that we done it! It's the most beautiful Church in Helsinki for me! Definitely recommend you to visit with your family,friends or alone. We hear organ there on 5th of January, free enter and absolutely amazing sound!

This is a very nice looking big church, different style from Temppelinaukio church. If possible go and visit the church to listen to some concert.

Came across this edifice whilst walking in the area. Really strange to see. Such a large imposing structure in what is largely a residential area.

This church is beautfiul, well located in Helsinki. Take a walk in here and try to find time when they have a concert in church. In winter time, especially in end of year before Christmas, this is magnificent tip. ;)

Very very beautiful church! It looks so great outside, so big and contrast and brightness of this building! I think, that is the most beautiful place in this city! If you want to make pics - come here! This place is empty, because stand not near centre, but Helsinki is not large, so - you can come here on foot... More

When we visited this church, around midday on a weekday, it was empty. It was a beautiful building, and there was a lovely atmosphere there - I guess because of the prayer and worship offered by those who attend.

Went in by chance and had a good look around and then went back for an evening organ recital. A very good evening had by all and free too if you didn't purchase a programme. Great architecture but plain

Not too far from the city centre, easy to reach by foot. For a Finnish church the decoratinons are plentiful. Really worth of visiting.
