Karesuando kyrka

The Karesuando Church is a wooden church building in the North of Sweden, at the border with Finland. The church is the northernmost church of the country. The church was built in 1816 after Sweden lost the war with Russia. Borders were remarked and the main town of Markkina became Finnish. This meant that Sweden needed a new principal town and parish and Karuesando was chosen. The church was replaced in 1905 and restored to its present state in 1954.
