This is the Church of Empress Alexandra Martyr, located at the market square in Turku. It’s an orthodox church, and a beautiful building, ordered by Nicholas I of Russia in the early 1800’s. I don’t know if Nicholas also ordered the impressive wrought iron fence, or if that was a later addition, but I like it. Luckily, the gates are kept open so no one will have to sacrifice their nuts to get in when the bells are ringing.
