Korsnäs Church

Korsnäs, Finland

The wooden church of Korsnäs was designed by famous architect Carl Ludvig Engel and it was built in 1831. The belfry dates already from the previous church, and it is built in 1747 (the current appearance dates from the restoration made around 1860s). The adjacent parsonage, also built in 1831, is today a parish museum.

Komea Carl Ludvig Engelin suunnittelema pienehkö ristikirkko, tasavarsineen, joka on rakennettu 1831. Kirkon kellotapuli on lähtöjään vuodeolta 1747 ja modernisoitu nykyiseen muotoonsa 1860. Kirkko erittäin hyvin pidetty ja edelleen aina yksityiskohdiltaan myöden. Messinki kiiltää ja maalaukset ovat kunnossa. Kirkon ympäristö ja kiviaidatkin siistit. Kirkoista kiinnostuneille erinomainen käyntikohde. Korsnäsin kirkonseutu on lueteltu M6seoviraston toimesta valtakunnallisesti merkittäviin, kulttuurihistoriallisesti arvokkaisiin ympäristöihin, liikuntaesteelliselle hieman haastava.

Narikala Castle

Narikala is an ancient fortress overlooking Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, and the Kura River. The fortress consists of two walled sections on a steep hill between the sulphur baths and the botanical gardens of Tbilisi. On the lower court there is the recently restored St Nicholas church. Newly built in 1996–1997, it replaces the original 13th-century church that was destroyed in a fire. The new church is of 'prescribed cross' type, having doors on three sides. The internal part of the church is decorated with the frescos showing scenes both from the Bible and history of Georgia.

The fortress was established in the 4th century and it was a Persian citadel. It was considerably expanded by the Umayyads in the 7th century and later, by king David the Builder (1089–1125). Most of extant fortifications date from the 16th and 17th centuries. In 1827, parts of the fortress were damaged by an earthquake and demolished.
