Pyhän Laurin kirkko, The Church of St. Lawrence

The Church of St. Lawrence (Finnish: Vantaan Pyhän Laurin kirkko; Swedish: Helsinge kyrka S:t Lars) is a church in Vantaa, Finland. Dating back to ca. 1450, it is the oldest building in Vantaa and all of Greater Helsinki.[2] It is also the main church of the Tikkurila Parish. Along with its surrounding neighborhood, the church is a part of the Helsingin pitäjän kirkonkylä district, which is one of the best preserved historical parishes in all of Finland.[3]

The Church of St. Lawrence was partially destroyed in a fire on 7 May 1893,[3] after which it was reconstructed in a Gothic Revival style.
