Came across this edifice whilst walking in the area. Really strange to see. Such a large imposing structure in what is largely a residential area.

This church is beautfiul, well located in Helsinki. Take a walk in here and try to find time when they have a concert in church. In winter time, especially in end of year before Christmas, this is magnificent tip. ;)

Very very beautiful church! It looks so great outside, so big and contrast and brightness of this building! I think, that is the most beautiful place in this city! If you want to make pics - come here! This place is empty, because stand not near centre, but Helsinki is not large, so - you can come here on foot... More

When we visited this church, around midday on a weekday, it was empty. It was a beautiful building, and there was a lovely atmosphere there - I guess because of the prayer and worship offered by those who attend.

Went in by chance and had a good look around and then went back for an evening organ recital. A very good evening had by all and free too if you didn't purchase a programme. Great architecture but plain

Not too far from the city centre, easy to reach by foot. For a Finnish church the decoratinons are plentiful. Really worth of visiting.

A beautiful Protestant Church. My partner liked it more than I did, because to be honest it echoed me another similar church Johannes kirke from the city of Bergen, Norway: same name and very similar architecture. Worth a visit! When we went there in a Saturday morning, the church was closed, so we could not see the interior.

I don't know why it's still not the symbol of the city! It's something marvelous, definitely my favorite spot in the city now.

Beautiful church. Worth a trip. Good thing to on a rainy day. The inside is different from what I expected since it's very bright and warm.
