About
Vormsi church which dates back to the 14th century and is the main memento of its history and culture – is located in the centre of the island, in Hullo. The church was unused for a long time after the Swedish escaped from the island in the end of World War II. The church was dedicated again on Olav's Day in 1990.Be sure to take a look at the characteristic square-shaped nave and have look at the old ceiling paintings in the altar room.Interesting facts:The first church in Vormsi was a wooden church.* St. Olav’s church in Vormsi is unique for the fact that it has no belfry, the bell hangs above the door under the high ridge.* There are two gnarled pine trees at the gate of the church – this is the place where the pillory stood.

The church is quite unassuming with a nice interior. The highlight is the view from the tower. To reach the small viewing platform that encircles the tower, you climb a narrow, spiral staircase. On a mid-week day in early April, there were few visitors and the staircase was not crowded. I imagine on a hot summer day, with lots of cruise ships in town, this staircase would be a bit of a nightmare. There isn't really room for people going up and down to pass each other except at the landings. The views of the old town from the top are great!

What seems a normal church, the tower was once used by the KGB to block Finnish TV signals. An impressive building, with an example of a lovely old warehouse just around the corner, now a restaurant.
