Alvar Aalto is a really important architect and designer to Finnish people, and yeah, you should check some of his works, if you're into arctitecture. But for my (FInnish) taste ,if you like churches, Finland is not the place to be.

Stunning architecture and austere beauty make this church very memorable. The acoustic is reverberant (it is often used for recordings).

We visitied this church partly because Aalto was the architect and partly because it has been used as a recording venue by the Lahti Symphony Orchestra. We thought the brick exterior was unattractive but liked the white interior.

The structure of the building is very airy and open. The beautiful organ was played a very skillful organist. The sound was superb!
