St John’s Lutheran Church in Haapsalu

St. John’s Church in Haapsalu which is rebuilt from a 15th century warehouse differs from other churches for its location of north-south orientation. When entering the church you should certainly pay attention to the 5-metre stone altar and the wooden pulpit.
Interesting facts: St John’s Church has been a church for an Estonian congregation and many of the simpler citizens have been buried under the floor and in the churchyard. The clock in the tower of the church is one of the oldest in Estonia and the oldest in the west of Estonia. The church is accessible on the outside all year round; the interior of the church can be admired during the events in the church calendar.

  • Beautiful old Church

    Beautiful old Church on your way from Episcopal Castle to sea front. Worth of visit, because in Haapsalu you can easily walk from every major attraction to another

  • 旧市庁舎の裏手にあります。

    この教会は新しいもののようです。建物は全体が白く尖塔や本堂の屋根は赤い瓦です。旧市庁舎と一体になっているみたいでした。

  • прекрасный день в конце лета в Хаапсалу

    интересна с точки зрения своих особенностей: расположена с севера на юг, а колокол является одним из самых старых в Эстонии
