18th century wooden church listed on the Unesco world heritage list. The church is situated on a junction of waterways and is a very nice example of Finnish wooden architecture. The church is still in use of services to this day

This site has now been entered into UNESCO heritage sites. Generations of my family have been married at this church. I find the simpleness of it the most beautiful. It is a must see as it is one of the most historical and beautiful Churches in Finland.
