Johannes church is simply beautiful , very rich unusual decisions inside and strong gothic outside. What is interesting - there are 5 main churches in Helsinki and all of them are absolutely different !

Gothic style churches are not typical for Finland. This neo-gothic church right in the centre of the design-district of Helsinki is a gem to be seen by day and illuminated by night. Whether is summer against the azure blue Finnish sky or in winter against...More

You can see the two twin spires of the Johannes Church from many areas of downtown Helsinki. We had just finished visiting the Design Museum which is just across the road, admired the exterior and wanted a look inside. Sat. around 4.30 in the afternoon....More
