If you like to see old churches or perhaps just enjoy the silence this might be a place for you. Old rock walls and long wooden bench. Nothing fancy but typical old Church close to Helsinki. Easy to access (1 km walk) from Espoo center railway station.

The most important churches for me in the world. My "homechurch" where a lot of sorrow and happiness has been lived. A place for silence and giving your self time without everyday stress. If you are closeby don't hesitate to visit!

I recommend to visit this middle-aged church in summertime when you are able to enjoy the green and fascinating area around the church, too. There are middle-age happenings in the area couple of weekends in a year.

Centuries old stone church located in the park environment next to Espoo river. Worth to take a walk along the river side. All kids have been baptisted in this church due to its charm.

I like the Espoo 500 year old Church but when it was renovated about 30 years ago the "heart" and the soul of it was totally destroyed when an old chandalier was removed and some modern spot lights were installed. Also the glass picture can be seen properly like it should be seen! Big mistake! I am so disappointed of... More
