First this church was made back in 1670, but during the periods of "Lesser Hate" and "Great Hate"(a kind of civil wars) the church was badly ruined. It was made again 1761, but it burned down in Midsummer 1876 by careless handling of fire(way you go, man!)
It was built(again...) 1886(architect F.Sjöström/Sjostrom), It was rebuild 1890.
Some renovations were done in 1968 and 1991.
There is room for 1500 people.

Karhu(means Bear): Sunny terrace.
Underneath the Rebekka restaurant.
Excellent terrace at backyard. One of the few bars in town, so you really dont have a choice if you wanna get drunk or something.
Favorite Dish: Read above...
Rebekka: Decent buffet meals
One of the few restaurants in Kitee center.
The buffet lunch is 7 Euros, and includes appetizers, meal and desserts.
Beer is 4 Euros/0,5L
Favorite Dish: Been there only once, so i have to say buffet(that day it was chicken thights with rice, and it was just great).
If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.
By train to Kitee
A train from Helsinki to Kitee takes five hours.
The station is in the middle of nowhere(about 8 kilometers to city center), but i assume that there are some bus connection.
I really dunno that for sure.
