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. The church is also known for its excellent acoustics. The annual Vantaa Baroque Week is one of the many musical events arranged here.

This area is known for a load of Pokemon stops and a gym as well. The church itself was not on our list of places to visit. The building itself has a number 1893 written on it and that makes it an ooooold building.

They have made a great job restoring the original mural paintings of the vaulted ceiling. The recent renovation of the woodwork has also been excellent. You really should visit this 15th century masterpiece.

If you're a fan of churches, this is on top5 of the best churches at Helsinki Area. Located quite near the airport, and 20min by car from Downtown Helsinki, this is also not so far away.
