Eliisabet's Church, inaugurated in 1750, is the most outstanding sacral building of the Baroque period in Estonia. The beautiful church in the centre of Parnu invites you to step in and look around to see a pulpit in the Neo-Gothic style from the middle of the 19th century, the altar and the altarpiece “Resurrection”. One of the best organs in Estonia is in Eliisabet's Church and the place is popular as a concert hall among music lovers.Interesting to know!The church got its name from Russian Empress Jelizaveta thanks to whom the congregation got a Lutheran church.

Not much to see there, the interior plan is somewhat unusual with a whole section expanding to the right of the altar. Sits in the middle of a quaint section of old buildings. The area is very tourist oriented.

I like the doors - looks like smiley faces! The church set up with two "nave" at right angles to each other is novel to me.

This is the msot surprising me church in Estonia. Architecture is quite oridinary, characteristic for protestant (lutheran) churches. However the way how the audience sit is extraordinary. Normally you have an altar and people sit just in front of alter. Here ther sit in front...More
