Beautiful Church on an Island. The serenity of the place is so nice and totally peaceful. Lots of people and visitors there.

This was former Orthodox church but now it's a Lutheran church that functions as a light house too seen at a very far distance.

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.

Originally built as a Russian orthodox church, it was converted to a Lutheran one in the 1920's after the Russians left Helsinki. It is one of a kind in that it has a lighthouse built into the dome.

The ferry to Suomenlinna is well worth the 5 Euros. When starting the walk on the island, the church is at the beginning with beautiful plants all around. After touring the Baltic Countries, this church is okay to see but not breathtaking.
