Massive church with moderna inside
Oct 2021
The church is massive and the first impression is a bit like you're facing a castle of some sort. Inside is quite simple nad modern. Some wall painings and some windows, but nothing "flashy". Still, it is an interesting visit.

Stolid exterior, but extraordinary inside.

The murals are unique.

Don't leave Tampere without seeing them.

Opens at 10h00. Free entry.

It's a really nice church, doesn't look like a typical Finnish church and is worth a visit if you are passing by

Grand stone church
Apr 2021
This beautiful church was designed by famous Finnish architect Lars Sonck and built early 20th century.
I highly recommend a visit and admiring all simple and beautiful detailed decorations. To get all out of the visit, I recommend to read about the church before hand.

Impressive interior
Aug 2020
This church was completed in 1907. It was designed in the National Romantic style by a famous Finnish architect Lars Sonck.

The interior is famous for its stunning frescoes painted by Hugo Simberg. The striking altar-piece is painted by another famous Finnish painter Magnus Enckell.

This church is absolutely a must-see church in Finland.

Life and death
Jul 2020
The frescos of great Finnish symbolist Hugo Simberg depict all aspects of human life as befits a church. Young boys holding the flower garland surround the seating area and can be seen during the seremony from all angles. Death in many roles was a favourite theme for the artist, on the left side of the altar skeletons are tending to their garden. Several versions of the painting Wounded Angel exist, one in Ateneum in Helsinki, here two boys are carrying her with the citys factories in the back ground. The imposing stone cathedral in Art Nouveau style, mainly vanished from Tampere, was designed in 1902 by Lars Sonck.

Tampere has to be proud of this church

If you are in Tampere, it worth to go and visit this church. It’s a historical location with Hugo Simberg’s unconventional church art and Lars Sonck’s impressive architecture wowing visitors. Both inside and outside are nice.
