About
The Church of Blessed Virgin Mary in Polva is one of the oldest churches in historical Vorumaa. The rarities of the church are the old altar painting The Last Supper (1650) and the altar panels (1647). There is an altar painting The Resurrection (Friedrich Ludwig von Maydell, 1845). The church was originally a square-shaped hall church with three naves. Today it has preserved from it a high tower with a deep niche and a Western façade. Interesting to know: According to a legend, the key of the church is held by a kneeling girl called Mary who is walled in. Allegedly that is also the origin of the name of the church and Polva (‘knee’ for the Estonian ‘polv’).

Обычный храм. По расписанию открыта с 9 до 13. Воскресенье основная служба. Внутри ничего особенного.

Kyrkan ligger i stadens centrum och bakom kyrkan några hundra meter bort ligger en sjö med insjöbad. För att besöka kyrkan måste man parkera på stadens stora parkeringsplats mitt emot kyrkan 200 meter. Kyrkans vita interiör och med vitt draperi innanför ingångsporten, gör just denna kyrka mycket välkomnande ! Härlig kyrka !

В крохотном городке Пылва кроме этой церкви и еще пары других, на мой взгляд смотреть нечего. Мне показалось интересным, что если смотреть на церковь прямо, то она немного напоминает силуэт самолета) К сожалению, внутрь попасть не удалось, церковь была закрыта.
