This red-brick church was completed in 1880. It is located in the middle of the vibrant Church Park. The church represents both Romanesque and Gothic styles.

Really nice church. Easy access. Central location. Nice architecture for a Lutheran church which normally are so plain.

This brick church was built in 1880. There are 350 seats in the church. It is interesting to visit the church but the surrounding church park (Kirkkopuisto) is very beautiful, too. You find flowers and statues there.

The statue named Maiden/Spring/Longing was made of red granite in 1944. Sources of inspiration for this sculpture have been Primavera and The Birth of Venus by Botticelli in Florence and the actual model has been the girlfriend of the sculptor Oskari Raja-aho.

The memorial of Minna Canth (1844-1897) was made of bronze and red granite in 1962. Minna Canth was a very important person in Finland. She worked on behalf of women's rights. There are also many other statues around the church.
