  • Beautiful church outside and inside. Nicely played music and belonged to the priest and Rippiker's speeches and songs. Even the supper was fine, we went in the queue at the altar and no one was in the front. The confirmation session proceeded very smoothly.

  • This is the most central church in Pori, with many concerts held. The organs are great. The acoustics are at the point, so I recommend to go to the concerts. The church is 150 years old. The interior walls are covered with beautiful paintings. The church is located in the heart of the Poria Riverside, and the church Park is a nice walk. A monument to the Civil War was finally brought to the front of the church, including the red-side, which caused unprecedented resistance in Pori, even though the civil war has been for more than a hundred years.
