World's largest wooden church

Kerimäki is a small village in Eastern Finland.

Get in[edit]

The village is a short bus ride away from Savonlinna.

Get around[edit]


  • The Wooden Church, [1]. The wooden church of the village is said to be the world's largest - built in the mid 19th century to hold 3000 seats or take 5000 to standing. Apparently the pastor thought that it ought to be capable of accommodating half the population at any one time. It now appears inordinately large for the village but, its proportions being immensely pleasing, it's an object of great beauty.  edit






  • Hotel Herttua, Veneenniementie 64, +358 (0)15 769 900, [2]. Wide range of opportunities to enjoy outdoor activities. Marked fitness paths and cross-country skiing trails start outside the hotel. Rowing boats and canoes are available for rent. We also rent bicycles in summertime. Tour skates, kick sleds and snowshoes can be rented in winter. 17m swimming pool and a gym. Massages and cosmetic treatments are available by reservation. Dancing in the restaurant on Wednesdays and Fridays. Karaoke on Thursdays.  edit
