Haapasaari church / Haapasaaren kirkko

Haapasaari church is located 25 kilometers from the mainland and it is the easternmost functioning church at the Gulf of Finland. The church can accommodate 250 people.

The present church was completed in 1858 on the same site, which previously had been a house of prayer.




Haapasaaren kirkko sijaitsee 25 kilometrin päässä mantereelta ja on Suomenlahden itäisin toimiva saarikirkko. Pieneen saaristolaiskirkkoon mahtuu 250 ihmistä.

Nykyinen kirkko on valmistunut 1858 samalle paikalle, jossa aiemmin oli rukoushuone.
