This church is covered in biblical paintings that tell a story. Very cold to visit in the wintertime and only open at christmas, however if you visit during the summer, the guides can tell you interesting stories about the history of the church and the artwork inside it. Pay attention to the opening times as they are limited.

I recommend to visit the cemetery during the summer or at Christmas. Christmas is worth visiting to see at evening.

Extremely well preserved paintings of biblical stories.
Free of charge, definately worth a visit, only a max 15 drive from Kajaani city center. Church is located in Paltaniemi, not in Paltamo!

Check out the stables too. If visiting during the summer, combine this with a visit to the Paltaniemi beach - suitable for kids and not so crowded.

We were a bit unlucky that we haven't done some research work. The church isn't open all your round (closed from middle of August), so we could only watch the outside of the church.
When you look into the windows you could see the magnificience of some paintings, but yeah, they will really look better from the inside.

Next to the church there are free toilets.
Also at close distance from the church there's a stable, which was build for the arrival of the Russian Czar Alexander I.

Please note, that this beautifully decorated wooden church is not in Paltamo, but in a village of Paltaniemi, 2 km from Kajaani airport and around 10 km from Kajaani centre. Correct address is Paltaniementie 851, 87850 Paltaniemi.
