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.

The Church of the Cross is designed by the famous Finnish architect Alvar Aalto. It was built in 1978.

From outside it is not the prettiest churches in Finland. The building is dominated by a cross design formed by 52 windows and a massive belfry of concrete.

The beautiful interior has a triangular form which directs the attention towards the altar. The interior has the same vibe as you can feel in the Finlandia House in Helsinki.

The sculpture Spirit of Freedom by Wäinö Aaltonen stands in the cemetery for the war dead.

The Lahti International Organ Festival is held here.

Alvar Aalto is a really important architect and designer to Finnish people, and yeah, you should check some of his works, if you're into arctitecture. But for my (FInnish) taste ,if you like churches, Finland is not the place to be.

This church is very beautiful from inside, and it is also important part of city of Lahti landscape. It is designed by Alvar Aalto and represents basic church architecture in Finland

Stunning architecture and austere beauty make this church very memorable. The acoustic is reverberant (it is often used for recordings).

This is a very modern church. It looks quite simplistic in colour and atmosphere but we were told that because of its architecture and modern style it made this church quite different which I do agree to. It was a very different church from what I am used to. Overall quite simple.

We visitied this church partly because Aalto was the architect and partly because it has been used as a recording venue by the Lahti Symphony Orchestra. We thought the brick exterior was unattractive but liked the white interior.
