Churches in Savonlinna and its surrounding areas are definitely worth a visit. The area offers many historically important wooden churches and chapels. We are especially proud to have the biggest wooden church in the world which is situated in the centre of Kerimäki town. The locals call it the “biggest wooden church of all Christendom”. Kerimäki town sits on the shores of Lake Puruvesi, and is about 20 kilometres north-east from Savonlinna.
Savonlinna has many other churches and chapels too, of course. Savonlinna’s large church was built in 1879, and it is situated right in the city centre.
