St Lawrence Lutheran Church in Kuressaare, Saaremaa

Visited February 27, 2013

St Lawrence Lutheran Church in Kuressaare is located in downtown Kuressaare on the island of Saaremaa. I have seen it several times, but never had a chance to take a picture until this regional outreach trip.

The church was built in 1733 and rebuilt in 1836. The interior is apparently original, though I couldn't get inside because they were actually doing some restoration work while I was there. Apparently it houses the medieval baptismal font from Anseküla church.
