Ruhnu's New Church

Ruhnu's New Church was built two meters from the old wooden church. The walls of the church are made from rocks cut to shape on location. Only the church tower was built from wood. The New Church was consecrated in 1912.
Good to know: Proud standing on the church balcony is Nikolaus Bell, one of the oldest church bells in Estonia. Only candlelight is used for lighting services. In 2006, the congregation of the small island with a population of 60 used their own resources to repair the leaning cross at the top of the tower, and the tower top shot full of holes by seal hunters.

Стоит увидеть

Один из немногих объектов, которые стоит посмотреть на этом острове. На интересный рассказ экскурсовода рассчитывать не стоит, но вы сможете насладиться объектом, который мало кто видел.
