Korsholm Church

Korsholm Church (StreetView)
Originally the building was built for the Court of Appeal between 1776 and 1786, and designed by Carl Fredrik Adelcrantz. After the city, including the church, burnt down in 1852, the building was rebuilt as a church and steeple added under the direction of Carl Axel Setterberg, who worked as a county architect for the county of Vasa.

This area is called Old Vasa as after the fire the new town was built in 1862 about seven kilometres to the northwest from the old town. The new town was originally called Nikolaistad (Finnish: Nikolainkaupunki), named after the late tsar and grand duke of Finland Nikolai I and renamed Vaasa in 1917.
