The Church of Blessed Virgin Mary in Nissi was built in 1873. It is a historicist church with a 52.5-metre-high tower. Its magnificent stained-glass windows St. John the Evangelist and St. Peter the Apostle were made in Riga (H. Beyermann, 1902).
The church has stylish pseudo-gothic furnishings and artistic paintings. The architect of the church is David Grim from St. Petersburg. Members of the Stackelbergs, Bistrams, and many other famous families are buried in the church garden.
