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.
