Today I have two views of the Petäjävesi Old Church, a UNESCO site in Finland.

The first view is of the outside of the church from a Postcrosser in Finland. The Church was built between 1763 and 1765 and celebrates its 250th anniversary this year.UNESCO-petajavesi

Here is a view of the inside, showing the carving on the pulpit. Petäjävesi was listed on the UNESCO list as an example of unique Scandinavian church architecture. There is also a cemetery around the church where about 9,400 people are buried. This card was sent by Taru T. from the Postcrossing forum.

Here are the stamps, including a Petäjävesi commemorative from 2005 that Taru T. used:
