The Church was very beautiful and a place of solace. Much history of Finland is enshrined there. The Caroline ship was fascinating.

Extremely plain. Literally nothing to see inside. I had better times playing with a potato on a sofa.

This historic old church started as Russian, but converted to Lutheran when the Russians left and the Finns took over. Functions as an active church, but also as a lighthouse and beacon for planes.
