This list of Gothic Brick Buildings in Finland is part of the Gothic Brick Buildings List . These structures are listed as completely as possible, in all corresponding countries in Europe. The only buildings included are those on which the brick appears somewhere or, in the case of muddy surfaces, at least the brick structure of the masonry is recognizable.

Historical-cultural framework:
Finland was part of the Kingdom of Sweden in the Gothic period . A considerable number of Gothic churches with elements of brick Gothic can be found in communities with a significant or even predominantly Swedish-speaking population . This is also taken into account in the names.

This list contains 35 entries of structures.

Usage instructions:

  • Typeface / font styles: Where buildings in several places (districts) of a municipality are listed in succession, the municipality name for the first named place / district was set in bold. The names of districts grouped in this way are in italics.
