Tuusula Church

Tuusula’s beautiful greyish cruciform church was built in 1734. Master builder was writer Aleksis Kivi’s great-great grandfather Erik Eskilsson Hannula. The church is very simply decorated and a devout atmosphere is created with stained-glass windows and an altarpiece dating back to 1850’s by Johan Asplund. Aleksis Kivi and Pekka Halonen are buried in the small churchyard.
