St. George Orthodox Church in Paldiski

St. George Orthodox Church in Paldiski is a typical example of a stone church with classicist baroque roots; it was built between 1784 and 1787

However, its history dates back further: the Paldiski Apostolic Orthodox congregation, founded in 1721, started when a simple tent was erected as a church for the soldiers and workmen who had been sent here to carry out fortifying work commissioned by Russian czar Peter the Great. A wooden church replaced the original tent-church (constructed in 1724–1728). It was consecrated in late 1728 in honour of St. George the Martyr.

Bell tower and onion-domed altar, which were demolished during the Soviet occupation, are still to be restored.

The church is listed in the National Registry of Cultural Monuments.

  • Православный храм с длинной историей

    Сейчас храм еще на реставрации, все еще без купола, утерянного в Советское время. Тем не менее он вляется памятников и выглядит солидней и архитектурно интересней соседнего распиаренного храма...
