About
Eliisabet's Church, inaugurated in 1750, is the most outstanding sacral building of the Baroque period in Estonia. The beautiful church in the centre of Parnu invites you to step in and look around to see a pulpit in the Neo-Gothic style from the middle of the 19th century, the altar and the altarpiece “Resurrection”. One of the best organs in Estonia is in Eliisabet's Church and the place is popular as a concert hall among music lovers.Interesting to know!The church got its name from Russian Empress Jelizaveta thanks to whom the congregation got a Lutheran church.

Baroque gem near main street of Old Town
Sep 2019
Another of the lovely Baroque building in Parnu built under the Russian Tsar's rule. The building is struggling a bit from needed maintenance, but the inside is lovely with a wooden gallery and roundel stained glass window near the organ pipes. You can see this building from the main shopping/restaurant street in the old town section of Parnu and well worth a quick stop to see this Luthern Church.

Nice architectural church in Pärnu town
Aug 2018 • Friends
We passed by this church when walking around Pärnu town near the visitors information centre. It is surrounded by many restaurants around it. It stands out from a distance due to the tall structure and creates a very nice backdrop in the area.

Like so many Estonian churches, Eliisabet's is grand and beautiful on the outside and yet modest and warm on the inside.
Worth a visit and it's in the centre of town.

Plain Church
Jul 2017 • Couples
Not much to see there, the interior plan is somewhat unusual with a whole section expanding to the right of the altar.
Sits in the middle of a quaint section of old buildings.
The area is very tourist oriented.

I like the doors - looks like smiley faces! The church set up with two "nave" at right angles to each other is novel to me.
