One of the most beautiful churches I´ve ever seen!
Feb 2017 • Couples
If you are heading to Oulu, from the North, or have some spare time, please take the chance to go to this small village. This church is amazingly beautiful, with some remarkable paintings on the walls and roof.
I found it open during a Sunday, when they were going to have a concert, but I don´t know if it will open during weekdays - maybe, a good idea to check at the tourism office!

Beautiful church if you get lost north of Oulu
Aug 2016
About a 20 min car ride from Oulu town centre. Not worth the trip on its own but must visit if you happen to pass by.

The church full of baroque-style paintings
Feb 2016 • Family
The Haukipudas Church is famous for its artworks. Interior of the wooden church is richly decorated by baroque-style paintings of Mikael Toppelius. The paintings were made in 1774-1779, ca. ten years after the church was completed. There were originally 33 paintings in the walls and in the ceiling, but seven of them have destroyed. The largest work (of the Last Judgement) covers one wall entirely. It is said that if all these paintings were placed end-on-end, they would stretch over a distance of 150 metres.
