View on map

Noarootsi Church in late-Gothic style was built around 1500. You will first notice the Falu red plank roof – the church is one of the three plank-roof churches in Estonia. In the medieval times the lime and rubble stone building also had the function of being a fortified church.
Inside the church one should pay attention to the baptising stone, baroque pulpit, limestone baroque epitaph to Minister Martin Winter. Interesting facts: By the entrance there is a stone slab with royal autographs from the present King of Sweden – Carl XVI Gustav who visited Noarootsi in 1992. Across the road from the church you will see the oldest wooden building in Läänemaa – the parsonage originating from the 17th century.

North West Estonia is not a big tourist destination and even local traffic is very limited so you get nice surprises among the flat Nordic landscape. On the way from Haapsalu to Osterby you will have...

Another church that we were unable to gain access to

This church was closed when we visited in early March (but so have most of the other churches we've been to also). From the outside it looked quite austere and we could see no stained glass. There...

Nice small church

Small and modest, typical church for Estonia, dedicated to St. Cathrine. Around the church you can find old round grosses as grave marks.
