Overview
More
One-naved classicistic Kuressaare St. Laurence Church was established at the current location in 17th century. Individuality to the church is given by decorative details from dolomite. The pulpit and altar wall of the church are hewed from dolomite, all along the building is surrounded by columnar balcony. In the church You can see the first Sauer instrument of Estonia, the only organ of Kuressaare city. Interesting to know: Unique baptismal stone comes from crushed in 1944 Ansekula medieval church;Altar painting „Kolgata” author is Carl Siegismund Walther;The Empire style pin broach is inspired by St. Petersburg buildings.

We were here on a Sunday and so the church was open. It has a large balcony inside which was quite grand and interesting to learn some of the history. I found the spire quite unusual from other churches I've seen whilst travelling.

Having grown up in Kuressaare, this beautiful church has been in my childhood a lot as it is in the centre of town and you simply have to go past it every day! Also had my lovely grandmothers funeral there few years ago and the...More

Average church in Estonia, but with one interesting detail in interior - huge balcony. May be it is more interesting to visit this church to listen a concert.
