Geocache Description:

Kolmen Ristin Kirkko design by Alvar Aalto

Akateemikko Alvar Aallon suunnittelema kirkko valmistui vuonna 1957. Nimensä Kolmen Ristin Kirkko sai alttaritaulun paikalle sijoitetusta kolmesta rististä, jotka kuvaavat Golgatan ristejä. Kirkossa on 103 ikkunaa joista ainoastaan kaksi on samanmuotoista. Alttari ja koroke ovat iltalialaista marmoria, penkit itäkarjalaista punahonkaa ja tekstiilit pellavaa. Kirkon 34 metriä korkea kellotorni kuvaa alasammuttua vasamaa. Tornissa soi kolme kelloa, joista yksi on peräisin entisen Enson (nyk. Svetogorskin) hautakappelista.
Ajoittain jästejä on alueella paljon ja tämä on pyritty huomioimaan kätkön sijoittelussa (huomaamaton lokkaus). Maasto on helppo, mutta lokkaus ei mahdollisesti onnitu ihan rullatuolista käsin, siksi 1,5.


English

The Church of the Three Crosses (Vuoksenniska chruch), designed by academician Alvar Aalto, is architecturally an interesting building. Its slender, high belfry describes a down shot arrow. Instead of the altar painting there are three crosses. Among the 103 windows only two are identical. Aalto planned the church also for other activities in the parish besides services. Therefore the church can be divided into three parts. In the church there are seats for 800 persons. The windows and lightning are high up, which creates fascinating display of light and shadow. The Church of the Three Crosses was completed in 1957. The stained glass on the ceiling is as old as the church and also designed by Alvar Aalto.

This cache ought to be a easy log, also when the church yard is crowded.
