The Estonian Orthodox Maria Magdaleena Church is located in an idyllic area of Haapsalu – on the Promenade. Russian Tsar Alexander II attended the opening of the church in 1852.
The church was restored to its present state only a few years ago. The church is open on Sundays from 9 am to noon. To visit at other times, please contact us in advance. Interesting fact: The church and the surrounding buildings are depicted in Ilon Wikland’s book Long, Long Journey. Ilon Wikland, who was the illustrator of Astrid Lindgren’s books, describes her Haapsalu childhood in the book.
