Tõrva Church – Chamber Hall

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.

  • Nice historical place

    What an amazing building in city center. If you have a possipility to visit the tower then use it. Greate view around the town.

  • 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.

  • Концерт

    Маленькие города Эстонии - это сказочно красиво! Уютные парки, улочки и места. На каждой лавке приятно посидеть. Зал приятный и красивый, история дышит и оживает.
