Beyond the Arctic Circle 7 / Más allá del Círculo Polar Ártico 7 / Au-delà du Cercle arctique 7

In English:

Utsjoki with its church.

Utsjoki is very small place in the middle of “Nowhere”. Utsjoki is Finland’s northernmost municipality, but not the northernmost village, which is Nuorgam in my next post. The Utsjoki church is a stone church and built in 1850-1853. It is small with 230 seating places. In front of the church there is small memorial dedicated to those who gave their life in the second WW2.

After church photos You see some old houses. Oldest of them are from the 1700s, most of them from the 1800s.They served those people who came from far away. Also in my photos You see the “center” of Utsjoki, the bridge connecting Finland and Norway and of course Tana river again.

En español:

Utsjoki con su iglesia.

Utsjoki es un lugar muy pequeño en el medio de “ninguna parte”. Utsjoki es el municipio más septentrional de Finlandia, pero no es el pueblo el más septentrional, que es Nuorgam en mi próximo post. La iglesia Utsjoki es una iglesia de piedra y construida en 1850-1853. Es pequeña, con 230 asientos. Delante de la iglesia hay un pequeño monumento dedicado a los que han dado su vida durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial.

Después de las fotos iglesia Usted verá algunas casas antiguas. El más antiguo de ellos es de la década de 1700, la mayoría de ellas de la 1800s. Ellas sirvieron a las personas que venían de muy lejos. También en mis fotos se ve el “centro” de Utsjoki, el puente que conecta Finlandia y Noruega y, por supuesto, Río Tana.

En francais:

Utsjoki avec son l’église.

Utsjoki est une place très petite dans le milieu de “nulle part”. Utsjoki est la municipalité la plus septentrionale de la Finlande, mais pas le village le plus septentrional, qui est Nuorgam dans mon post suivant. L’église d’Utsjoki est une église en pierre et construit en 1850-1853. Elle est petit avec 230 places assises. En face de l’église il ya petit mémorial dédié à ceux qui ont donné leur vie durant la Seconde Guerre mondiale.

Après les photos de l’Eglise vous voyez quelques vieilles maisons. Ancien d’entre eux sont depuis les années 1700, la plupart d’entre eux de la 1800s.They servi ces gens qui sont venus de loin. Toujours dans mes photos Vous voyez le “centre” d’Utsjoki, le pont reliant la Finlande et la Norvège et bien sûr Le Teno à nouveau.

  1. A very beautiful series again Matti ! Beautiful Church and I love that cute little house with the grass on the roof😉
    Have a wonderful weekend🙂

    • Hi Tamara.

      So nice that You commented Thank You. I just came shoveling snow from our yard. We have snow as much as in Kemi from where I came yesterday evening after photographing World’s Biggest Snow Castle. My photos from it I’ll present in next December.

      Those small houses are really cute, so I find them also.

      Happy week-end!

  2. The church is very beautiful. I love the simplicity of Finnish and Scandinavian style, very uncluttered so you look carefully at each thing. But I cannot even begin to imagine how the people who go there keep warm in the winter months! I suppose the grass roof of the little cottage adds warmth.

    • Hello Janice.

      Thank You. I think that this church will be good for comparing a church in Kirkenes, Norway after few posts. Outside cloths keep warm and inside houses people must warm every day. So it has been also here in the Southern part also.

      I have warmed our capacitive fireplace every single day. Our fireplace produces heat for one day by the normal heating or even for two nights, if I heat it very hot. The hot of a fireplace is very soft, very enjoyable. It differs very much from that heat which is got by electricity.

      Happy week-end!

  3. Spectacular photos yet again, Matti.

    What was the old wooden “seat” that looked like something a child might sit on to be higher than on the pews?

    Again, WWII comes up… I forwarded your last post to Steven. Being a retired navy commander with twenty-five years of service, he knows so much about the wars and such; so he brought up the involvement of your part of the world in the war.

    I was stunned, of course, not only because I hadn’t stopped to think how the war how affected you all, but also because I couldn’t imagine soldiers suffering through the cold in your part of the world. But maybe, too, I don’t like thinking about the chaos that is war.

    I always think of your place there as close to heaven… far from most of the world, a haven… peaceful, pristine, unique. So thinking that wars and conflict among people there is most unsettling. But, like duh. I guess that’s why they were called “world wars.” Lots of countries were involved to some degree.

    The church is beautiful. Certainly different from those in the states. And the bridge most unusual. Exquisite, actually. Very elegant.

    I look forward to the next jaunt with you and Anja!

      Sorry that I have no answer to Your question at this moment. Later, if I find out it, I’ll tell.

      I was telling more about war and war memorials, when I answered to Karen of Honolulu. Read it, please! Thank You for Your comment.

      Happy Sunday to You and Yours!

  4. I really like the church — the exterior is rustic, but the interior is very bright and modern. It’s absolutely beautiful in every respect. The sod roof on the old cabin reminds me of some of the sod homes that were built on our prairie in the early days. The bridge is beautiful and I think the river is very scenic. I’m very happy you’re taking us along with you as you travel above the Arctic Circle.

    • Hi George.

      About sod roof houses. They were important during hard winter times, it is sure. Further to the south regions we have yet some historic horse stables. During winter horses were in stables during worship. At those days people came from far away and horse needed some shelter.

      I am very happy that You like my travel story.

      Happy Sunday!

  5. Again, your photos have shown me so much of your beautiful country. I would very much love to see those churches. I am not religious by any means but the workmanship and pride that goes into the historical building need to be admired.

    Could you tell me why the memorial shows the men in what looks to be dressed in old world clothing? What is the significance of that?

    I also was wondering if at some point you could put captions under some of your photos. They are showing such interesting things but I am not always sure what they are.

    Thank you for a wonderful post. Aloha

    • Hello Karen.

      Thank You for Your interest concerning our Arctic regions. Those memorials are important to us. They are making honor to them who lost their live in war. Not only to them, but to mothers and children who lost their husband and father. Then hard times begin to them. There a “millions” of real stories from them. We are so small country which was in war against huge Eastern State. We lost war, but won many battles as it is said here. BTW, we are the only country in the world, which has paid off the debts of war!

      I belong to that generation who had possibility to listen to real stories from war. Those stories are not nice. Last summer my father-in-law died and obviously he suffered from war yet after 60-70 years. During every visit to his home he told to us war stories. In Finland we have huge amount of war books; told by them who were themselves in war.

      I see war this way: It causes sorrow, no heroes. It is purely my opinion.

      I have good explanation about War memorials with plenty of photos. War memorials have best place on our cemeteries and best well kept.

      War memorials

      It contains two posts.

      Have a lovely Sunday!

  6. I love to photograph the architectural beauty of the places i visits….The roof garden its has formed naturally and its beautiful, one of the museums in San Francisco has the living roof with flowers n everything.

    • Hi Hellopalz.

      How glad I am when You could find some interesting in my post. There are “many” houses with turf roofs on these Arctic areas. Many of them, I have seen in Norway.

      Have a wonderful day!

  8. That is a great old church. I love the architecture and I would think the acoustics in it would be wonderful for hearing that pipe organ! Those old houses are historical treasures! I hope they will be preserved. The river is beautiful. I know I would enjoy exploring it and the places through which it flows.

    • Hi Terry.

      I am glad that You liked the church and old historical houses. The river was at this moment dry, but in the Spring after winter it is flooding well. Then it is excellent time for fishing in it.

      Happy Sunday!

  10. I love your photos! I just love looking at the inside of churches over in Europe. And the ones found in Scandinavia are very different than the ones found in Italy or Southern Europe. I love the detail and the history. And those wooden cabins by the lake are gorgeous!

    • Hello Ducky’s Always Hungry.

      You are so right when mentioning differencies between churches of Southern Europe and Finland. Our churches are from inside very basics. Only Orthodox churches have “gold”.

      I am glad that You liked my post. Thank You commenting.

    Comment by neurone.afasico — February 28, 2012 @ 21:58 | Reply

    • Hello neurone.afasico.

      Thank You stopping by. Few years ago my ex-company organized courses for those who are fear of flying. What is the situation now, I do not know. They really helped people. Well, to travel there are many concrete ways, like trains, buses, cars and boats. Internet offers one very nice way. Personally I like most of all from “ordinary people’s blogs”. They tell by heart from their life in so many interesting places.

      The main difference between churches in South and Middle Europe against Nordic countries is decoration (my opinion). Our churches are simply speaking missing gold. There are gold in some Orthodox churches. Other differences come where the church is situated, in a town or on countryside. Personally I like small wooden churches which can be found on countryside far away from big cities. Sometimes one can find some strange things in our churches which are general elsewhere. One example is Votive Ships. One which is not found anywhere is wooden beggars by the church or its bell tower. We call them “Poor man statues”. They have interesting history and someday I’ll start to present them.

      I love reading also and it means that I have a book on my bedside table. In our house we have own “small library” full with books. I started to read books as soon as I learned to read.

      Have a nice day!
