Overview

Agricola church, located near Kaivopuisto, was designed by Lars Sonck, the architect of the famous Kallio church. However, there are no similarities between this church and the Kallio church, as their architecture is inspired by totally different eras. This church is spacious and therefore an ideal place for big events. The tower is 106 metres in height, evoking an image of trying to reach up to the skies. The highest part of the tower is actually a steel needle, the most unique detail of this church. The name of the church comes from the father of the standard Finnish language, Mikael Agricola. Trams 1 and 3T as well as bus 14b can be used to reach this church.
