Central Pori Church (Keski-Porin kirkko) Reviews
Kaunis kirkko ulkoa ja sisältä. Hienosti soi musiikki ja kuului papin ja rippikoululaisten puheet ja laulut. Ehtoollinenkin sujui hienosti, mentiin jonossa alttarille eikä etuiltu yhtään. Konfirmaatio... more »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.
Tämä on Porin keskeisin kirkko, jossa pidetään paljon konserttejakin. Urut ovat jyhkeän upeat. Akustiikka on kohdillaan, joten suosittelen menemään konsertteihin. Kirkko on 150 vuotta vanha. Sisäseinä... more »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.
Nice & really humanic event on Easter Sunday.
Really beautiful church on the river Kokemäki in the downtown of Pori.
