Tuulos Church

Tuulos, Finland

The greystone church of Tuulos was built probably between years 1510-1540, but the oldest part, the sacristy, was built by Sairiala estate owner Knut Posse between 1477-1485. There is a Posse family coat of arms in the northern wall of sacristy. The church may have been sanctified to St. Bridget of Sweden.

Definitely worth a visit! The church is worth seeing both inside and out. A specialty is Knut Posse's coat of arms in the end triangle of the sacristy.

This church has been my job for 46 years. That's why it is special among churches.

The construction of this medieval church began in 1478 by Knut Possen. The church is believed to have been completed in the first half of the 1500s. The church bell tower was built in 1780. The church is dedicated to Tuulos St. Birgita. This unique church is worth a visit!

Diocletian's Palace

Considered to be one of the most imposing Roman ruins, Diocletian’s palace is certainly the main attraction of the city of Split. The ruins of palace, built between the late 3rd and the early 4th centuries A.D., can be found throughout the city. Today the remains of the palace are part of the historic core of Split, which in 1979 was listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

While it is referred to as a 'palace' because of its intended use as the retirement residence of Diocletian, the term can be misleading as the structure is massive and more resembles a large fortress: about half of it was for Diocletian's personal use, and the rest housed the military garrison.


The palace has a form of an irregular rectangle with numerous towers on the western, northern, and eastern facades.
