Oulu Cathedral is the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Sophia Magdalena, built in 1777 as a sign of respect for King Gustav III of Sweden and named after his wife. The cathedral is located in the very center of the city.
In 1822, a great fire broke out in the city, during which the wooden structures of the cathedral were destroyed. Until 1845, the cathedral was restored. The restoration work was completed with the construction of the bell tower.
The interior of the temple is amazingly beautiful. A pulpit for a preacher, rows of benches, shelves for prayer books, an organ - all this was done with great love and grace. Under the vault of the church, in accordance with tradition, a model of the ship is fortified. Seafarers have long donated models of ships to churches, sometimes reaching a length of three meters.
