Catherine's Church in Võru

28,000 silver roubles were donated towards the construction of this Lutheran church by Russian empress Catherine II. It was blessed on 24 July 1793, when it received the name 'Catherine'. It is thought that the church - which was designed in early classicist style with baroque roots and which boasts stunning arched windows - was designed by the architect Christoph Haberlandt from Riga. Renovations in 1879 saw its tower receive a new dome, and a four-faced clock was also installed. The church has an organ built by the Kriisa brothers in 1913. You can visit the church on Sundays during mass times.

  • Образец классицизма

    Красивая и нарядная церковь с желтыми стенами и зеленой крышей. Говорят, что стала образцом для ряда других церквей в Эстонии. Расположена в центре, прекрасно смотрится рядом со старыми небольшими...

  • Понравилось

    Строительство церкив было завершено в 1804. Названы в честь Святой Екатерины Великомученницы. Построена по проекту архитектора Шонса.

  • Красиво

    Освещение церкви состоялось в 1793 году. В начале двадцатого века установлен орган. Неплохо бы отремонтировать фасады. Внутрь можно попасть по воскреченьям.
