Kallio Church Reviews

A huge church that is visible a long way. I wasn’t that impressed by the interior though except for the light coming through the windows that looked very nice. more »
Worth walking up the hill to visit the area. Good feeling of Helsinki and its typical architectural style based on granite stones. Austere church with no frills.
This is a beautiful church with frequent musical offerings. We lucked into organ music when we stopped by at about 8:30 one evening. They were advertising an almost daily musical cafe. Don't be put off by a locked door go around to the other side.
