My friends said that she's lived in Oulu for so many years but haven't really seen the boat, and fortunately one day, the church was open so we went in to pay respect and got to see the boat.

Doors many times closed, but worth visiting when possible and nearby. Lutheran church are pretty spartan compared to catholic.

This cathedral wasn't open so we could only look at it from the outside. It didn't look anything special.

Oulu Cathedral is a good example of the Empire style design by Carl Ludvig Engel. The church is a smaller scale version of Helsinki Cathedral. The bell tower is similar to the one at Tampere old church.

Oulu Cathedral is a part of old Oulu city center. This church is open for visitors specially during the summer time. Many times you can hear some orgin playing.
