The Church in Kristinestad
Kristinestad (Kristiinankaupunki in Finnish) is a small town south of Vaasa and North of Pori on the west coast of Finland. The town was founded by Per Brahe in 1649 and has about 10.000 inhabitants. Many old wooden bildings can be seen in the very nice center of this beutiful town.
When visiting Kristinestad, please go to the old Ulrika Eleonora-Church, well worth a visit. Other interesting places are the Navigation Museum ("Sj÷fartsmuseet" in Swedish) and the Cat Whipper Lane, one of the famous streets on our country.
