  • A must see in the central area of Finland, region of the lakes. This jewel of Finland is located 30 km from Jyväskylä: The old Church of Petäjävesi, a World Heritage site. A perfect Lutheran temple example of the classic Scandinavian construction, made entirely of natural pine wood. Built between 1763 and 1765 by master carpenter Leppanën

  • Petäjävesi old church was built in 1763-1764. It is a fine example of old wood craftmanship. Church was added to UNESCO world heritage list on 1994.  more »
  • The church is really nice, something that you rarely would see somewhere else as it is entirly made with wood. The church is small, but it's really interesting both for the architecture and for the history. If you're visiting it in winter remember to wear warm clothes as the church is not heated.
  • A 1723 building made of wood only and sitting on stones no cement used. What an amazing piece of art
