I happened to visit here during the Night of Arts and just happened to pop into the church when a lady was singing tango. The Old Church is surrounded by a park, a former cemetary of Kamppi - also a good place to hunt Pokémon

Despite being a smallish wooden building, it has a real charm from the simple shape and colours. The surrounding park makes it easy to get good views of it. It's only open 12-5pm so I didn't go in.

At first I didn't know that this building is a church. My friend who is a local told me about it. Have not yet see the inside of the building but this church sure match well with the surrounding, especially seeing it on winter time.

located in a little park, this bright white wooden construction looks really cute. A very nice building from the outside, with little of special attention on the inside.

It's charm comes from its age and simplicity. This wooden building is in the heart of Helsinki. A very peaceful place, worth a few minutes of your time when exploring the neighbourhood

If you are lucky, you will be able to see the inside of the old church, which is not open that much. Quite nice, but very austere.

The Old church is one of the few wooden church in the midlle of Helsinki. It is classical architecture, not very much decorated. Maybe you can say "old scandinavic style".
