Church of Iitti / Iglesia de Iitti / L'église d'Iitti / Iitin kirkko

In English:

Church of Iitti.

I was visiting this small, red wooden church in February. As You see it modest, but very beautiful in Finnish landscape in winter. It was built in 1693 and its roof style has something Hollandaise. I like also bell tower. Although many bell towers are quite similar in Finland, this one is peculiar.

En español:

La iglesia de Iitti.

Visitaba esta pequeña iglesia de madera roja en febrero. Como Usted lo ve está modesta, pero muy hermosa en el paisaje finlandés invernal. Fue construido en 1693 y su estilo de techo tiene algo Holandesa. Quiero también su campanario. Aunque muchos campanarios finlandesas estan bastante similares en Finlandia, éste es raro.

En français:

L'église d'Iitti.

Je visitais cette petite église en bois rouge au mois de février. Comme Vous le voyez c’est modeste, mais très bele dans le paysage Finlandais en l'hiver. Il a été construitée 1693 et son style de toit a quelque chose a la look Hollandaise. J'aime aussi le clocher. Bien que beaucoup de clochers sont tout à fait similaires dans Finlande, ceci c'est particulier.


Iitin kirkko.

Tämä pieni punainen puukirkko Pohjois-Kymenlaaksossa on viehättänyt minua aina. Kun vierailin Iitissä oli helmikuun puoliväli, oli lunta ja pakkasta, mutta kirkko, joka hehkui punaisena, loi päivään ihan uuden toivon.

Kirkko on rakennettu. vuonna 1693. Kirkon vesikatto on hieno. Se edustaa hollantilaista rakennustyyliä jossa erikoisuutena on korkea aumakatto. Myös kellotapuli on mielestäni erittäin nätti. Se sopii hyvin Suomen lumiseen ja valkoiseen luontoon kutsuen kirkkoon.

About Me

My photo
My hobby is photographing churches and other things in Finland. History of our churches starts about from 13th century. There are some specialities in our churches. Such are separated bell towers and carved wooden beggars outside churches. I am living in southern part of Finland about 50 kilometres / 35 miles north of Helsinki (capital of Finland). My other hobbies are South American popular music as Cumbias having them few hundreds records. Also gardening is one of my hobbies. I have been working all my life for our national air line company Finnair and now I am retired from my job. Languages are my hobbies also in that way, that at this moment I have been learning Spanish by reading Spanish books. Earlier I was reading French Sci-Fi books during 32 years. I am in good physical shape due to that I am daily walking much and eating healthful food. Also fast cars are my hobbies. I have car with 280 hp. It is a dream car for me. I hope that You enjoy my photos and make Your comments.
