The Orthodox Church of Hanko
The beginning of the spa epoch in Hanko was dominated by Russian visitors, who greatly enjoyed both the
milieu and the climate. The fact that there was not an orthodox church was perceived as a shortcoming which the Russian spa visitors soon had put right. The Orthodox Church of Hanko was completed in 1895. It is consecrated to Prince Vladimir and Mary Magdalene.
The orthodox church was used not only as a club-house but also as a horse stable when Hanko was a Soviet military base 1940-1941. Of all the churches in Hanko it was in best condition after the occupation, because the mining behind a propaganda poster next to the church entrance was discovered in time and the church was saved.
Therefore also the Lutheran services were at first held in the orthodox church. Helsinki Orthodox Parish let the church rent-free to Hanko parish.
