The most beautiful church in the province
The current church of Savitaipale, completed in 1924, was designed by architect Josef Stenbäck. The church holds worships on Sundays and public holidays at 10 am. The seating capacity is about 700. Savitaipale church functions as a road church during the summer. The objects of the church, in particular, the organ, altar painting, stained glasses, textiles, baptismal font, chandeliers and candlesticks are worthy of viewing.
In 2012, provincial magazine readers voted Church as the most beautiful church in the province. The article revealing the results of the vote began as such: ”Savitaipale Church takes your breath away and allows one’s mind to empty itself of our mundane hectic life. The church is impressive, whilst also being minimalist grey.” (Etelä-Saimaa 21.7.2012)
