About
Completed in 1768, the Church of Jekaterina is the most style pure and ample baroque church in Estonia. The design of facades characteristically for baroque disjunct and relief, the six broaches are finished with slender needle-shaped tips that add lightness and festiveness to the building. Since church is built a century before the majority of orthodox churches, it differs from them from architectural point of view but at the same time it has influenced the development of orthodox church architecture in whole Balticum.Interesting to know!Parnu church of Jekaterina was built by order and with financing of Russian queen Catherine the II.To this day Parnu Russian congregation operates in the church.

Lovely Baroque church that was open to visit
Sep 2019
Nice Baroque church that was open to visit. This church is in keeping with several other architectural feature of this seaside resort that are in the Baroque style. Interesting contrast for a Russian Orthodox Church that is also known as St. Catherine's in the English language literature.

very nice to look at from the outside. Inside, not outstanding, there is no lasting impression, with the staff on site it looks rather busy.

The church of St Catherine's, built in the baroque style during the 18th century but for the Orthodox faith. It is quite nice from the outside and simple inside.
