Finland - Teijo church (FI-501032)

This card shows the altarpiece of Teijo church, located in Salo region of Finland. I thought it would be impossible to find any information about it, but I found out that it was probably the smallest stone church in Finland. It was completed in 1830. And it was sent with a very nice Easter stamp :)


I like magnificient cathedrals, because they're interesting from the historic and touristic point of view. But I prefer the atmosphere of small churches, because it's so much easier to think, pray or just calm down there. I don't know, what does the whole Teijo church look like, but knowing it is a small stone building I suppose I would feel really good there :)
