LOVIISA

Loviisa is a small town in Southern Finland. It was founded in 1745 as a border fortress against Russia. We have found ourselves in this godforsaken town casually. The only point of interest for us was the Church of Loviisa (Loviisan kirkko). The address of one is Brandensteinink. 22 (just by Mannerheiminkatu) if you are interested. Church was built in 1863-1865 in the Neo-Gothic style. Swastika of various kinds can be found on all sides of the building.











The only swastika inside we have found on some medal that was exposed on the wall from the right of Jesus Christ's statue. We didn't understand the elucidative text under the medal because it was in Finnish, but as you can see the story of this award (1942) is somehow connected with the Marshal of Finland Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim.
