Tartu St. Paul’s Church of the Estonian Evangelical Lutheran Church

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating

Tartu St. Paul’s Church is the only Estonian sacral building in the art nouveau style, as well as one of the most outstanding twentieth-century sacral buildings in Estonia. The church and its wing form one of the most remarkable ensembles of sacral architecture. The church was designed by Finnish-American architect E. Saarinen in 1913; the construction was completed and the building was consecrated in 1917. The interior was finished in 1919. There was a fire in the church during the Second World War. However, the congregation led its partial restoration, so it was re-consecrated in 1966. The church has been restored by M. Nieminen and K. Järvinen on the basis of E. Saarinen’s projects. The church houses a columbarium, a crypt, and a bookstore. You can also visit the spire.
