Nõo St Lawrence Church of the Estonian Evangelical Lutheran Church

Tartu tänav 2, Nõo alevik, Nõo vald, Tartu maakond


In Nõo, you can visit the only rural church with genuine medieval arches (13th century) in Southern Estonia. The church has a wooden tower (1879) and pseudo-gothic furnishings from the 19th century. You will see the altar painting Christ on the Cross by Tõnis Grenzstein from 1895, four wooden sculptures of apostles (Jaan Koort, 1910), two organs – Walcker (large, 1890) and Müllverstedt (small, 1903), and the bust of Martin Lipp (1854–1923), a long-time teacher of the congregation and the author of the lyrics of the song of the Estonian flag.

In the summer months, Nõo Church participates in the Estonian Council of Churches' Wayfarers' Churches project.
