New Country - Finland by kwind

New Country - Finland

After two10 hour tour days in St. Petersburg our next stop on the cruise ship was Helsinki, Finland. We decided to get a hop on/off bus from the cruise port and see the sights of the city on our own pace. Our first stop of this beautiful little church called Kamppi Chapel. It's simple wooden outside was strikingly beautiful and its inside silent and welcoming! That's my 6'1" husband posing infront of it.


You weren't allowed to take photos inside and I respected that so here's a link about the place and a few more images so you can get a sense of what the inside was like:

Oh my. I immediately thought of a ship’s hull. A spectacular building. Your husband certainly gives the image scale. The interior is so stark, but in a good way. Quite the talented architect!

I thought it was the hull of a ship at first although the wood looks so beautiful, far too nice for a boat! The link tells us properly it’s story.
