Simuna church is one of the oldest in
Estonia as the Dome Church in Tallinn (13th century) although its exact building time is unknown. It has been destroyed in wars and rebuilt again several times during centuries. From the old church has remained part of a tower that was used on protective purposes. The altar was made by Chr. Ackermann, a famous wood carver and the altarpiece was made by Carl Sigismund Walther. The organ was built by Gustav Normann and so it is one of the oldest organs made by an Estonian. Visitors can visit a platform on the top of the bell-tower and enjoy a marvelous view on surroundings. The tower is 53,5 m high.
