Pootsi-Kõpu Church

The imposing Pootsi-Kõpu Holy Trinity Apostolic Orthodox Church is made of natural stone and decorated with large domes. It was built in 1873. The church has a baroque atmosphere and it is rather unique in Pärnu County in architectural terms as there is no bell tower above the main entrance. Other orthodox churches have also been built by this standard design created by G. Schell, such as Lalsi Church in Viljandi County, Ööriku and Leisi in Saaremaa, etc.
Useful information! Some of the congregation members who separated from the rest built the nearby wooden Seliste church 7 years earlier. There is a memorial plaque to Platon, the first bishop of the Estonian Apostolic-Orthodox Church, inside the church.
