Ortodoksinen Kirkkomuseo (The Orthodox Church Museum)
Ortodoksinen Kirkkomuseo (The Orthodox Church Museum) Review
Ortodoksinen Kirkkomuseo possesses one of the most interesting and unusual collections of its kind. When Karelia (the eastern province of Finland) was ceded to the Soviet Union after World War II, religious art was taken out of the monasteries and brought to Kuopio. The collection is eclectic, and includes one of the most beautiful icon collections in the world, as well as embroidered church textiles.
