<p>In the heart of Helsinki, in the old Kamppi cemetery, also called Vanha kirkkopuisto (Old Church Park) stands the Old Church, completed in 1826. The Old Church was designed by the creator of the Empire era centre of Helsinki, Carl Ludvig Engel. The church is decorated with simple pillars in the Doric style, gables and a delicate bell tower. The movables of the Ulrika Eleonora church, which was demolished to make room to the Cathedral, were moved to the wooden church, which was meant to be temporary. Only the pulpit still exists.
</p>
<p>Today the church is a popular church for weddings. A short organ recital is given on each Tuesday (at noon).</p>
