I found the church by accident as I was walking about. It isn't always open so you should check before you go if it is and if not when you can go in.

Visited the church during our drive around the city. The fresco of Jesus was huge and quite unlike those in other churches I have visited. Left just when a wedding ceremony was about to take place.

its great from the outside but I could not go inside because it was closed. Its quite picturesque. Its a lutheran church so I doubt the inside is not all the flash like catholic churches

The church was not open when I visited at 3pm on a Wednesday...am not sure why, but there are no signs around to indicate when it would be open. Weird and a bit disappointing after having read about it. But the building is amazing from the outside none the less

The church of Rovaniemi has an amazing painted altar wall fresco by Segerstråle. It is a good thing we have rushed us so we arrived just before closing: the visit was worth, a special experience before going back to Belgium!

Must see, everything all the previous Trip Advisors say about it. The only thing we could add is. Guide said U.S. Lutheran churches help in the rebuilding of the church after the war, by sending money donations. The Finish people were so kind, nice and friendly though out Finland. Traveling though Finland is one of our most enjoyable trips!

This church was easy to find and walk to. As we went at Christmastime, it was important for my girl and I to find a church and this was such a lovely little place to be. It is pretty both on the outside and on the inside and well worth a visit.

We went there as part of a tour and was accompanied by a local guide. Her explanation and narrative on the fresco made the visit even more meaningful. Worth a visit. It was a moving experience for me.
