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.
