Tõrva Church – Chamber Hall

Valga tänav 44, Tõrva linn, Tõrva vald, Valga maakond

View on map

The Helme-Tõrva Apostolic Orthodox Church of the Birth of Christ was built in Valga Street in the years 1903 to 1904. Karl Shurin was in charge of the building work. The two domes and bell tower made the church one of the most imposing churches in the Viljandi Apostolic Orthodox Deanery. The church was seriously damaged during the fierce battles fought in September 1944 and it was only restored in 1990 as a chamber hall.
Interesting facts: * the church was also used for salt and cement storage during the Soviet times; * the church-chamber hall currently belongs to the Lutheran church.

Не много истории

Были проездом в г.Тырва и по пути заглянули сюда. Двери были открыты, поэтому смогли осмотреть и скромное убранство зала. Хельме-Тырваская апостольская православная церковь рождения Христа была...

Schönes Gebäude neben der Straße

Hier ein paar aktuelle Fotos von dem schönen roten Gebäude neben der Durchgangsstraße. Eine Kirche ist ja laut Namen nicht und ein Hotel auch nicht.
