Eliisabet's Church

Eliisabet's Church, inaugurated in 1750, is the most outstanding sacral building of the Baroque period in Estonia. The beautiful church in the centre of Pärnu invites you to step in and look around to see a pulpit in the Neo-Gothic style from the middle of the 19th century, the altar and the altarpiece “Resurrection”. One of the best organs in Estonia is in Eliisabet's Church and the place is popular as a concert hall among music lovers.
Interesting to know! The church got its name from Russian Empress Jelizaveta thanks to whom the congregation got a Lutheran church.

    Look how the people sit there!

    This is the msot surprising me church in Estonia. Architecture is quite oridinary, characteristic for protestant (lutheran) churches. However the way how the audience sit is extraordinary. Normally...
