St. Lawrence’s stone

In Kuusalu, just by Peterburi Road there lies a huge stone – St. Lawrence’s Stone or Path Stone. It is an ancient cult stone, but probably it also marked the border between Kuusalu Church and Kolga monastery. On the church side of the stone today you can see the image of the burning grate or the fire tongs and a cross cut into the stone as a symbol of St. Lawrence – according to a legend the martyr was tortured to death on a burning grate. On the Kolga side of the stone you can see the emblem of the monastery (two crossed abbot’s crosiers) cut into the stone.
Interesting to know: - St. Lawrence was one of the most popular patron saints among old people

    Жили рядом в Виинисту, поэтому решили заехать на него посмотреть. Если честно ничего особенного, поэтому кончено же надо знать его историю и чем он так знаменателен. А вообще - камень как камень...
