Karuse Church
Karuse church is one of the oldest sacral buildings in Laanemaa – it was built in the 1260s as a fortress-church for the Livonian Order.Inside the church you should pay attention to the Baroque-style pulpit and altar. When walking around the churchyard you will see the trapezoid headstones originating from the 13th century and wheel crosses dating back to the 17th century.Interesting facts:It is likely that the master of the Livonian Order who was killed near Karuse in the sea ice battle with the Lithuanians is buried in the church.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Лютеранская церковь св. Маргариты расположена посреди парка прямо у дороги ведущей в порт Виртсу. Построена была в XIII веке, а башня в конце XIV-го. По истории основателем храма был магистр Ливонского ордена Отто фон Луттерберг, погибший в бою с литовцами и похороненному в церкви. Одна из старейших церквей Эстонии.
