Stunning church
Aug 2019
This Gothic Revival-style church is located next to the river in the city center.

The church is one of the largest in Finland. It was inaugurated in 1863.

The unique church tower made of cast iron is 72 meters tall.

The beautiful glass paintings are made by Magnus Enckell.

The church is famous for its pipe organ. They are relatively new and were built by Paschen Kiel Orgelbau in 2007.

In the middle of June, the church is the main concert venue of the annual Pori Organ festival.

We were met by a friendly guide who gave us thorough information about the church.

Tipical finnish Church

Very nice finnish church. It's near the river and near a nice park where people can walk and relax. I came there in April but it was full of snow and it was fantastic walk in that park and watch this amazing view with that Church. Pori is really calm and relaxing place.

One of Pori's Most Iconic Buildings
Sep 2016 • Couples
Finland is a beautiful country and Pori is rightly so also very beautiful. If you visit the city, you'll find it difficult to avoid seeing the Central-Pori Church at some point, whether close up or from a distance; and both perspectives are lovely. The proximity of the church to the river (Kokemäenjoki) and the large, magnificent park (Kirjurinluoto) makes for the church to be at the center of Pori's most Instagram-worthy region. As for the inside, I have only been inside once, for a wedding. It was truly stunning; just as lovely as any fantastic church I've even been inside (and I've been in quite a lot). I cannot speak to the regular services since I am not religious and don't attend. However, if you ever visit Pori, do yourself a favor and head over to the church. Hang out in that area and enjoy the beauty the city has to offer.

This church makes an excellent starting point for a walk round Pori. The interior is very interesting. Outside there's memorial park dedicated to Finnish soldiers who fought in the war against Russia.

Very beautiful church. it looks a bit like the Turku´s cathedral, but it is smaller and somehow more peaceful. I loved the ceiling looking as a full of starts sky.
