Incredible Inari

Incredible Inari

Inari, the center of Sami in Finland. Signs of living in the area have been found since the stone age…

Inari village is situated in the crossing of ancient passage routes and has been an important market and meeting point for several centuries. The first church was situated a few kilometres north east from the current village, built in the 1650’s. The current Inari church was built in the late 1800’s and to this day stands very close to its original location, only having been moved a short distance away due to getting destroyed in the Second World War and re-built in 1952. During the 19th century, people started to settle around the Inari church and thus the village slowly started to form.
