A real stone symphony! We came up to it pretty late and the church was closed, but the vista of this magnificent masterpiece colored by the last rays of sun is unforgettable. I do recommend this church even for a short visit.

Awesome music: gospel, classic, old style and choirs. This is refreshingly unformal and very 21th century church.

It was closed on a Saturday morning. Looks a fine buidling from the outside, there is a little bit of park even, but you are done with this atttaction in 10 min if it is not open. There seem to be some concerts on Sunday.

Archangle Michael's church is one of the biggest ones in Turku. The inside of it is very basic lutheran so quite plain, but still beautiful in a simple way. Definitely worth taking a look!

Even Archange Michael's church is not the oldest and most likely the first ones locals would spotted out - it is from my opinion the most beautiful church in Turku. So if you are interested in architect, church history or just beautiful buildings - this...More
