  • A fascinating place! Very old, beautiful and quiet. As a souvenir one can buy a paper sheet with details for a small model of the cathedral 😍 Besides, there is a tranquil place nearby where one can sit by the river and enjoy the day.
  • One of the oldest and most beautiful churches in Finland. The history of the church is very interesting and the artistic aspect of the church is fascinating. The view of the church from other side of the river, by the old library, is very picturesque.
