St Michael's Church

A quite delightful piece of Neo-Gothic architecture, St Michael’s Church is one of the most photogenic buildings in central Turku. Completed in 1905, the red bricks of the church shimmer in the summer sun, meshing gorgeously with the Norwegian grey brick of the roofs, glimmering away some 77m into the air. There is a stripped-back subtlety to the interior too, an understanding that ideas are bigger than aesthetics and belief will always trump surface beauty. The church was damaged during the 1939 Winter War between Finland and the Soviet Union but it has well and truly outlasted the latter.
