Pink church of Kemi / Iglesia rosa de Kemi / Église rose de Kemi

In English:

The pink church of Kemi.

Think, the colour of the church is pink.

The church of Kemi is built in 1902-1903. It is a brick church which capacity is for 1000 persons. Inside it is like many other churches, but about what I liked, was big nice crucifix. Also there is a huge Votive-ship. Outside there is huge war memorial. When I visited this church, there had been heavy blizzard just few days ago.

The bell tower is a good landmark for citizens of this small arctic city or why not also for seamen. From Helsinki to Kemi the distance is 711km / 442mi.

En español:

La iglesia rosa de Kemi.

Piensa, el color de la iglesia es rosa.

La iglesia de Kemi es construida en 1902-1903. Es una iglesia de ladrillo con su capacidad para 1000 personas. El interior es muy habitual como muchas otras iglesias, pero a lo que me quise, fui el crucifijo grande. También hay un Votivo-buque inmenso. Fuera hay un inmenso lugar de memoria de monumento a los caídos en la guerra. Cuándo visité esta iglesia, había habido ventisca fuerte justo hace pocos días.

El campanario es un señal bueno para ciudadanos de esta pequeña ciudad ártica y por que no también para marineros. De Helsinki a Kemi la distancia está 711 kilometros / 442 millas.

En francais:

L’église rose de Kemi.

Pensez, la couleur de l’église c’est rose.

L’église de Kemi est incorporée 1902-1903. C’est une église de brique. Sa capacité est pour 1000 personnes et de l’intérieur c’est comme beaucoup d’autres ‘églises, mais de ce que j’ai aimé, était le crucifix grand. Aussi il y a le Votif-bateau énorme. Dehors il y a un lieu énorme monument aux mémoire de morts de la guerre. Quand j’ai visité cette église, il y avait eu la tempête de neige lourde juste quelques jours avant.

Le clocher est une bonne signe pour les citoyens de cette petite ville arctique ou pourquoi pas aussi pour les marins. De Helsinki à Kemi la distance

est á 711 km / 442 milles.

  1. Fantastic photos. That place has a dream-like quality to it.

  2. Hello Matti,
    Tiens, le clocher est rattaché à l’ensemble, c’est presque une exception comparé aux autres églises que tu nous as montrées.
    Je cherchais d’autres détails liés au monde la mer ; oui, sur les vitraux !
    Les éclairages de nuit la mettent bien en valeur, encore une belle architecture.
    Je repense à l’étudiante Française, elle a du rapporter des pages et des pages d’écriture dans ses bagages !
    Bonne journée.

  3. Salut Marion.

    Oui, le clocher n’est separé comme c’est ordinairement quant à les églises en bois. La jeune étudiante Française a fait prête son études, mais je ne l’ai lu sa étude, parce que il y a le problem de m’envoyer à force de son volume de bits, mais voyons.

    Bonne journée á toi aussi.

  5. I have to say ‘pretty as a picture’ If you were at that church it looks like it would be a very short trip to heaven…in fact it looks like it’s in heaven

  6. Good morning, Matti
    This church looks beautiful inside and out and inviting. I never before saw a pink church. The architecture is very interesting and I like that. The crucifix pleased me very well. It is handled very nicely. The interior of the church are very bright and there is a lot of light through the beautiful windows. The pictures are all once again brilliant in color and illustrations. The dark blue sky shows the pink church, a beautiful contrast. The total representations are exemplary and masterfully reproduced by you. I am delighted that I could look at it. I continue to try to visit your blog. I wish you and your wife, Anya, good luck and health to your daily routes. Dear greetings Christel

    • Hello Christel.

      I guess that pink church is not so general in the world. What I like very much is that beautiful Votive ship.

      Happy Weekend.

  7. Pink churches aren’t very common in our countries (or have I missed something?) – I’ve only seen one pink church in Sweden and that was in Arvidsjaur.

    • Hejsan Staffan.

      Thank for Your visit here. What is coming to Your presumption concerning pink churches, I guess that You are right. So maybe our Northern people like pink, because as Arvidsjaur and Kemi are not in the Southern parts of our countries.

      Hälsningar.

  8. Sartenada,

    You commented on my blog on places to travel. This snow castle in Kemi looks fantastic! After looking at your pictures I’ve decided to find out more about Kemi, Finland. Thanks for the suggestion🙂

  9. Your photos make this pink church look really nice. You have wonderful composition. Your night time shots are out of this world.

    Comment by Preston Surface — January 17, 2010 @ 16:44 | Reply

    • Thank You Preston.

      Talking about night time shots, You must be aware that in the North, sunset is slower than in the Tropics. That means, that between daylight and real night, time is longer and if one is lucky with unclouded sky, as I was, then capturing “Arctice Magic moment” is easy. I was using ISO setting 3200.

      Greetings.

  10. The Pink Church is Beautiful! I love how the pink looks against the white snow, and you captured it wonderfully. Thank you for sharing your photos!

    • Hi shippysnacks.

      I am glad that You liked my photos from pink church of Kemi. Well, the color is a little bit “abnormal” when it is concerning churches, but as we see, it is suitable for churches also.🙂

      My greetings.

    • Salut Frammy.

      Merci de m’avoir fait un commentaire. Je pense que les églises roses sont assez rares dans notre monde.

      Je te souhaite aussi une excellente soirée.

  12. Matti! A pink church indeed!!! Like, wow, pink.

    You have the most interesing churches… and they’re HUGE compared to those here… especially the teeny-tiny Stella Maris Chapel on Goose Island.

    Thanks sooo much for sharing… and… Happy 2012 to both you and your beloved wife, Anja!

    • Hello Deli.

      Thank You for Your kind words. Personally I love churches of small places. On our countryside there are small, but so “cozy” churches.

      Have a lovely day!

  13. Wow! I don’t know what to say. I feel like a beautiful pink church – what an amazing sanctuary! Kemi is my name and it means “care for me” or “pet me” in my language (Yoruba). Thank you for sharing.

    • Hi Kemi.

      Thank You leaving Your comment. Isn’t wonderful to have an “own” town? I am very glad that You like this “special” colored church. In Finnish Kemi is just a name, name of town.

      Have a wonderful day!
