- After Paavali Church (the Church of Paul) was completed, it was called by some the most beautiful church in Helsinki. An unusual feature of this church is the residential and social spaces that exist in connection to the church itself. Those who are not so keen on the pompous Russian Empire-style architecture of the heart of Helsinki may like the architecture of this church, designed by architect Bertel Liljeqvist and consecrated in 1930. The church fits in well in its surroundings, which cannot be said about many other churches in the greater Helsinki region.
Services are held in Finnish at 10am and in Swedish at 12pm on Sundays and Christian holidays. You can get here on trams 6 and 8 or buses 70, 71, 73N and 77.
