High on a rock in Kallio this church was built 1908-1912. The architect was Lars Sonck. His design represent a Finnish Art Nouveau style- also called Finnish Jugend. It´s a "must see" church if you are found of jugend.

I'd been here before, as I used to stay in an hotel round the corner. I had another look a couple of weeks ago when I visited some friends in Kallio.

It's constructed in a completely different style from much of the architecture of the same era. I'm not too au fait with architectural styles, but I like it, not least because it's different. I remember something about there being 2 internationally famous organs in the church. What I can definitely remember is that Sibelius wrote the theme for the church bells.

The inside is pretty impressive too.

This is not a "must visit", but well worth a detour if in the area.
