Very beautifull architectual experience. It is a landmark when arriving to Loviisa. Inside wiew makes you feel a small human being. Make your day and visit Loviisa church. Took a rest thru silence. Forget how important you are.

Hi! Church is quite old and made of red bricks.Inside is nice paintings on the roof and behind the altar. This church has been built 1863-1865 because first wooden church was burned-out. In summertimes this opens at 11 am.
