- It is no wonder that the members of Töölö congregation are proud of their magnificent church; this is no doubt one of the pearls of Helsinki. The white asceticism of the basilica with its conspicuous belfry suits the atmosphere of the Töölö area to perfection. Designed by Hilding Ekelund in 1930, it represents the Classicism of the 1920s, a phase preliminary to Functionalism. Services are held in Finnish at 10a and in Swedish at 1p on Sundays and Christian holidays. You can get here on trams 4 or 10 from the Helsinki city centre.
