Further information

Beloved by the people of Turku, neogothic Michael's Church dominates the western cityscape, at the gateway to Port Arthur.

Michael's Church was consecrated in 1905. It was designed by the famous architect Lars Sonck, who was only 23 years old when he won a competition to design the church in 1894. The church exterior is done in a German neogothic style, whose characteristically slender spires and beautiful ornamentation make the church a favourite among many locals. Michael's Church is Turku's most popular church for weddings.

The Michael's Church organ was refurbished in 2002. The largest pipe here is also the largest metal organ pipe in Finland, at 9.6 metres tall.
