Prettiest church I got to see in Finland

It is worth going inside as it has a very beautiful stained-glass window and is made of really nice stone.

Fine example of the Finnish Jugend / Art Nouveau/ Arts and Crafts design in grey granite decorated by famous frescos. Ask for times with organ music.

This is in my opinion one of the most beautiful buildings in Tampere, in and out. Outside is stunning in its grandeur and inside is well worth a visit even if you are not religious - a guide might tell you the legend of the bullet holes on the ceiling..

Beautiful church, organ music and Worship Sundays at 10 am with the Lord's supper, check opening times in advance, as the church is not always open to the public.

If you are interested in architecture, this is absolutely the must! Style is called National Romantics. There are several buildings around Tampere(and in Finland) but here are also the frescos of Hugo Simberg, which include symbolism of those days.

This is the nicest church in Tampere. It is an old stone church that was renovated and looks very nice. Outdoors is a beautiful building and indoors it is always interesting to see the design and the architecture. Not a long visit but a must see when being on a visit to city.

The diamond of the churches in Tampere. This old stone church has been restored to its former glory by the Church community. During the year they have many music and religious concerts as well as performances. The artwork in the Church is unique even in the scale of Finland. One of the most famous art pieces there is the "garden... More

This is a fascinating church - very interesting stained glass windows and murals. Services take place on Sundays at 10am, and it's probably worth seeing the building in use. We were too late, but still enjoyed our visit very much. If I were to show people around Tampere, this would be very high up on my list of must-sees!
