The Church of the Three Crosses is a church in the city of Imatra, built by the architect Alvar Aalto in 1957 in the avant-garde style. This building is considered to be the most unusual and attractive building in the city. The church is notable for the fact that only two windows out of 103 have the same shape. She got her name thanks to the three crosses depicted on the altar, which symbolize the crosses on Calvary.
The church building is built of ordinary concrete, but the interior decoration is decorated with striking noble modesty: Italian marble, East Karelian wood, and linen are used here. In addition, the uniqueness of this temple lies in the amazing play of light and shadows. From windows of various bizarre shapes, light enters the space of the temple. The bell tower of the Church of the Three Crosses has an unusual arrow shape, pointing up. It has three bells, one of which was cast in Yaski.
The church is located in a quiet, cozy place among light birches and pines. First of all, this place was chosen in order to ensure free communication between parishioners and the Lord. Nothing here distracts a person from solitary prayer.
The Church of the Three Crosses is open to the public at any time.
