Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had to stop in town for a little bit and I wanted to see at least one heritage place, so this was it. This church is rather massive, even though it isnt a cathedral, and the exterior, although fine is quickly overshadowed by the light, colorful and harmonious interior, endowed with a magnificent frescoe. Outside the church, there is a beautiful WW2 monument and grave as well. and the city library is very close by. Basically, there is no reason not to take a look in here.

We took a guided tour of some sights in Rovaniemi by a local guide and her explanation of the history of the church and the story and meaning of the beautiful fresco behind the altar really made the visit worthwhile. The church is quite a large Lutheran church constructed in 1950 and the fresco is actually a mosaic. It 's a beautiful tranquil space to sit quietly and reflect and contemplate as you try to make meaning of the intricacies of the fresco.

Incredibly pretty & a member of the clergy took time to show us around & even took photos. They explained it was the 3rd church on that site, & pointed out other areas of interest we might enjoy too

Visited the Lutheran Church. Wonderful fresco behind the altar. Guide said the story is the Fountain of Life with all the seasons represented. Every part of the fresco represented a part of the story. A monument to the 609 local men who lost their lives in WWII is located behind the church. The German’s and the Finish people were fighting the Russians. At the end of the war most all of the buildings in town were burned to the ground.

While in my opinion the church looks not really special from the outside, I did really like the interior. The style of the frescos differs from what I've seen anywhere else so far. Also I like the possibility to watch the services online.

The current church designed by architect Bertel Liljequist was completed in 1950. The previous church was completely destroyed in the Lapland War in 1944.

The most impressive thing about the interior is the altar wall dominated by a large, 14-meter-high altar fresco “The Source of Life”, made by Professor Lennart Segerstråle.

The church is open daily during the summer and Christmas seasons.

The church is worth a visit, it is open most of the time for you to go inside and there are beautiful paintings behind the altar and on the roof.

It was not close to our hotel, but it worth to walk to see this church. I missed a ceremony as I saw people going out of the curch wearing their national costume.
The interior is much more modern than the outside.
