This beautiful sixteenth-century church in Vantaa is one of the most popular wedding churches in the Helsinki region, and the third-biggest granite church in Finland with unusually rich painted decorations.

Finnish medieval churches have a distinctive character; they are the product of a peripheral adaptation of forms to local materials and socio-economic conditions, which originates from the Roman Catholic period.

It is the capital city region's oldest building and the central church of the city of Vantaa. Built in 1450. A friend of mine went there to get married, and the place is beautiful and peaceful.

Nearby there's a nice place to... More

Part of the old Vantaa. Most likely the nicest church (with surroundings) in Vantaa. Lot of weddings take place there in the summer time. Nice atmosphere in Christmas time.
