One of the Finest Church in Norway

As promised, here's a blog post dedicated to Ms Balut of BalutManila.

Skien Church is the main church located in Skien, Telemark county in Norway.


Designed by architect Martin Hagbarth Schytte-Berg.


It is made of glazed red bricks. 


Marble and granite were also used.


  It is a cruciform church built in Neo-Gothic style. 


 Inspiration was taken from the German architects John Vollmer and John Otzens.


The church is 47 meters wide with a twin tower 68 meters high, while the interior is 17 meters high. 


The church was repeatedly lost in a fire but was reconstructed in April 8, 1892 by a norwegian builder Lorentz Christian Wagle.
