“Small, cosy church”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

A very pretty church with a big statue in the front. The church is famous for the but-marks on the benches when they got repainted. They unfortunately got repainted AGAIN after that..

“Dominates the town”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

This red brick church dates from the mid 19th century. It dominates the town at its entrance from the Helsinki side.

Many of the artefacts in the church date from far earlier and the church that was burned down - and which this church replaced on the same site - reputedly had the first Finnish and Swedish bibles in everyday use.

On a leisurely trip along the south of Finland, the church is worth a look along with the rest of Loviisa.
