Active Holiday in Estonia

Nõva Church

Address: Nõva küla, Nõva vald, Lääne maakond | Show on map

Olev’s Church in Nõva originating from the 18th century is a cosy wooden beach-chapel-style church with unique stained glass imitations. It is one of the few wooden churches preserved in Estonia, it is also one of the smallest ones, and it is only 13.6 x 7.1 metres in size.
When walking around in the churchyard take a closer look at iron crosses. The crosses made by the local blacksmiths are all unique – even the landlady von Ungern-Sternberg of Nõva Manor made herself her own cross. Interesting facts: When inside, take a look at the benches – the ones for men and women have different design. On top of the roof there is a figure of a rooster.
