584 FI - Petäjävesi Old Church (1994)

Brief Description

"Petäjävesi Old Church, in central Finland, was built of logs between 1763 and 1765. This Lutheran country church is a typical example of an architectural tradition that is unique to eastern Scandinavia. It combines the Renaissance conception of a centrally planned church with older forms deriving from Gothic groin vaults."

佩泰耶韦西老教堂
"佩泰耶韦西老教堂位于芬兰中部,建于1763至1765年,完全由原木建成。这个教堂是路德教派国家特有的教堂,体现了斯堪的纳维亚东部地区独特的传统建筑风格,把文艺复兴时期的中央教堂风格与源于哥特式建筑的穹形天花板特色和谐地结合在一起。"
