The old cemetery next to church is very interesting.

I recommend to visit the cemetery during the summer or at Christmas. Christmas is worth visiting to see at evening.

Please note, that this beautifully decorated wooden church is not in Paltamo, but in a village of Paltaniemi, 2 km from Kajaani airport and around 10 km from Kajaani centre. Correct address is Paltaniementie 851, 87850 Paltaniemi.
