View on map

Saatse Church was completed in 1801. This congregation has been a mixed congregation of Setos and Russians. Saatse's biggest holiday is St. Paraskeva's Day (the last Friday in July.). Paraskeva means "Friday" in Greek. The church has "royal gates" from the old wooden church, and a 15th century stone cross. The only saint of Seto background is associated with the church: St. Stefanus, a former parish priest, who is depicted in icons in Seto folk costume. In 1919, Stefanus was shot along with Father Vassili, who was also declared a saint.

Почитание традиций своего народа!

Церковь располагается на кладбище, люди подъезжают приводят в порядок могилы. Заброшенных захоронений не видела. Запомнилось огромное гнездо аиста с птенцами.

Jag var där juli 2013.mest på Sätu-museet där.

Detta är mkt fint o gammalt museum väl värt att besöka. faktiskt åker man en bit in i Ryssland ca 200 m utan att ha visum.

Уютная деревенька

Не могу судить о самой истории данной церкви, но со стороны отлично вписывается в маленький провинциальный городок. Не пропустите, так как городок маленький.
