About
This Rapla church is the only rural church with two towers in Estonia. The New Roman style building that was consecrated in 1901 was designed by Baltic German architect Rudolf von Engelhardt, and is one of the purest examples of this style in Estonia. Interesting facts: The pulpit and altar were produced in the workshops of Christian Ackermann and Quirinnius Rabe. The Rapla Church Music Festival got its start in the Rapla church. In the church you can listen to the organ produced by Estonia’s renowned organ master craftsmen, the brothers Kriisa. The limestone building can accommodate 3,000 people. In the churchyard you can see round crosses dating back to the 17th century and the monument to the War of Independence designed by Jaan Koort.

The description of the landmark tells about the details worth seeing. In summer the elderly ladies show you inside. The sound of the organ is unforgettable. In winter the church is cold, although a lot of amazing concerts take place (esp. at Christmas), people know and put on some more clothes. In December choirs perform there and the repertoire is a wonderful addition to the interior and cheers your mind and ears. One of the oldest items is a wooden cross on the wall. Have a look and think of 14 century...
A really lovely place to see.

A centrepiece of the town. This church stands tall with its two towers. Great gardens and monuments. I unfortunately didn't get to see the inside of the church but next time I will. It's worth stopping off and walking the gardens too.
