The people of Savonlinna had to go to the Sääminki church when they didn't have their own church. In 1850 governor Aleksander Thesleff gave order to build a church in Savonniemi. The actual construction began in 1874.
In 1896 the new Diocese of Savonlinna was founded and the Savonlinna church became a cathedral. The first bishop was Gustaf Johansson. In 1925 the bishop's seat was moved to Vyborg, but the church still retained "cathedral" as its name.
During the Winter War on 1 May 1940, Savonlinna was bombed and the church was damaged. It was restored in 1947–1948 by architect Bertel Liljeqvist. In 1990–1991, it was renovated by Ansu Ånström.

Savonlinnan Tuomiokirkko sijaitsee mäen päällä. Kirkkoväellä on ollut hyvät näkymät eri suuntiin. Nyt puut hieman estävät näkyvyyttä. Aukikin oli. more »Savonlinna Cathedral is located at the top of the Hill. Church family has been good views in all directions. Now the trees a little block visibility. Aukikin was.
Found it closed. Why are churches closed? Shouldn't they be open 24/7?
I like the church atmosphere. It is good to be quiet and to be self-without performance. Blessed. I recommend if you are looking for a head reset.
