Petäjävesi Old Church celebrates its 250th anniversary

Following in Alvar Aalto’s footsteps: Muurame Church

Built in the 1760s, the magnificent Petäjävesi Old Church is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Completed in 1880, Jyväskylä City Church is located in the heart of the city, in the middle of the vibrant Church Park. Jyväskylä also has a beautiful Orthodox church. The main church of the Jyväskylä parish is Taulumäki Church, which was designed by Elsi Borg and completed in 1929. It is also known as the Church of Angels, because of its many paintings of angels. Kuokkala Church, the newest church in Jyväskylä, is an impressive work of architecture, with excellent acoustics.
