It looked better before refurbishment
May 2021
This is a real shame as inside they have photos of how it looked when it was an orthodox church in Russian times. It looked much nicer then...now they've removed many of the domes and now it looks quite plain and boring.

Beautiful neoclassical church
Jul 2020
The church was built as a Russian Orthodox garrison church in 1854. In 1918, it was converted into a Lutheran church. A lighthouse still operates above the dome.

This church is a very popular wedding site.

Church on high ground
Aug 2019
Inside the Sea Fortress Suomenlinna there is also a church, Suomenlinna Church. It is located on high ground surrounded by trees.
It was build in 1854 as a garrison church an was Russian Orthodox, but as Finland took control of the Fortress in 1920 it was converted to Lutheran.
The tower which is 27 meter high is also working as lighthouse for sea and air traffic today.
The church is open and it is a big church and all white and clean, also inside, it is a beautiful church . Do go there.

Impressive church
Sep 2019
Very impressive clean white church with interesting statues of the apostle around the dome. However, do be careful of the very steep steps up to the church entrance.

Pretty and Haunting
Nov 2018 • Family
As you take a short walk from the ferry, through the arch and up to the crest of the hill, the church commands your view. It is a pretty and simple church that, flanked by bare trees, leaves a lasting retinal image that is quite haunting. Close to the church there is a lovely if tiny coffee shop up a flight of stairs. Worth a visit for soup.

A very beautiful Church

The Church was very beautiful and a place of solace. Much history of Finland is enshrined there. The Caroline ship was fascinating.

Former Orthodox church
Sep 2018 • Couples
This was former Orthodox church but now it's a Lutheran church that functions as a light house too seen at a very far distance.
