Esku Chapel and Cemetery
Esku Chapel and Cemetery
Esku chapel, nestled in the middle of the forest in Lahemaa National Park, was built in 1845 by the von Fock family of Sagadi Manor. It was designed for their use as well as a place of burial for the local farming families. Its garden was redesigned as a cemetery at the behest of Baron Paul Eduard von Fock and is unlike any other you will find in Estonia. What makes it unique are the wooden crosses and small stone name plates you will find here.

Nach dem Besuch des Fischerdorfs Altja bogen wir auf der Weiterreise einfach vom Weg ab und wollten wissen, was sich denn hinter Esku Kabel verbirgt!

Wir fanden eine helle und freundliche lutherische Kirche, irgendwo im nirgendwo.

Wie wir es gerne mal machen, stimmten wir in der Kirche ein Lied an.

Eine Dame betrat die Kirche und bat uns spontan doch zum Gottesdienst zu bleiben. Vom Pfarrer bekamen wir eine Liturgie. Weil alles so freundlich und herzlich war, ließen wir uns einladen und blieben!!! Was für eine wunderbare Entscheidung. Wir verbrachten eine gesegnete Zeit mit dem Pfarrer, der Küsterin und dem Organisten. Mehr Menschen nahmen am Gottesdienst nicht teil. Der Pfarrer predigte spontan auf estnisch und englisch und alle Lieder könnten wir mitsingen, da es deutsche Choräle waren.

Dieser spontane Gottesdienst war einer der Highlight unserer Reise!!!
