A Glance at Sodankylä Old Wooden Church

[edsanimate animation=”zoomIn” duration=”2″ infinite_animation=”no” animate_on=””]

Here’s some pictures about one of the oldest wooden churches in Lapland. The Sodankylä Old Wooden Church was built in 1689 for the people of Middle Lapland and restored in 1926, while the shingles and the boarding were re-done between 1991-1995 by the National Board of Antiquities and Historical Monuments.

It is a very popular wedding church and services are held in the summertime.

When in August we visited and filmed the church there were many people waiting for having guided tour.
