Vammala is a pleasant town with about 15.000 inhabitants in southwestern Finland. It is situated in an area of great natural beauty with about 100 lakes. Vammala is also the active centre of a district with almost 30,000 inhabitants.
Since 13th century there has been a Sastamala parish in the area of Vammala and there are several old churches. The oldest of the seven churches is the Sastamala Church in Karkku, which was built at the end of the 15th century or at the beginning of the 16th century. The church was thoroughly researched and completly restored in the 1960s. Almost as old is St. Olaf’s Church in Tyrvää, situated magnificiently on a rock, almost surrounded by water. During the summer 1997 an unique project was carried out to replace the old shingle roof of the church with a new one. The work was mainly carried out by community efforts. The church was, however, destroyed by a fire on 21st September, 1997, but the reconstruction work has already been started. The current main church in Vammala is the Tyrvää Church - built by the Vammaskoski rapids in 1855. It is the first church with two steeples in Finland. The church was, however, destroyed by a fire on 21st September 1997 but it’s now reconstructed and will be consecrated again in August 2003.
Vammala - the town of books
Vammala is also known as a town of books. The Fair of Old Literature is an annual event organized for all the friends of literature. The event takes place at the turn of June and July in the school of Sylvää. The programme includes book selling, seminars, exhibitions, sightseeing, and much more. A similar event for children will be organized in August 2003 for the first time by the Finnish Book Institute. It’s a national centre of expertise for the field of book and literature and supported by the Foundation for Finnish Book Institute. In June 2003 a new tourist attraction, Herra Hakkaraisen talo (translation: the House of Mr. Hakkarainen) (4 euro) will be inaugurated. It’s an interactive exhibition, based on works of a beloved illustrator Mauri Kunnas. It’s hilarious place to visit, especially for children.
