Churches in the Savonlinna region
Churches in the Savonlinna region 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 located in the centre of Kerimäki town. The locals call it the “biggest wooden church of all Christendom”. Kerimäki sits on the shores of Lake Puruvesi, about 20 kilometres north-east from Savonlinna.
Savonlinna has many other churches and chapels too, of course. Savonlinna Cathedral was built in 1879, and it is situated right in the city centre.
