Overview
More
Due to the massive religious conversion at the end of the 19th century, the 18th-century Ekateriina's Church became too small for the Parnu orthodox congregation. So, in 1904, the historic Old Russian-style Parnu Transformation of Our Lord Apostolic Orthodox Church was built and its congregation (Estonian) was separated from the former congregation of Ekateriina's congregation (Russian). The church had a typical to that time brick facade and a base of granite ashlar work. The campanile is 38 m high and the cupola 34 m high. The altar wall holds 11 icons and 11 major wall paintings with figurative composition.

A small beautiful cathedral and a bishops seat for western Estonia where one can see a bishops service at Sundays if lucky with a lot of processions, bishop and some 50 faithful. Actually taking pictures is possible but one should ask politely from the church...More

Nice small orthodox church, feeling very special for the real christian orthodoxes, especially Russian ones.

The church is beautiful both outside and inside. Photographing inside Will cost you, and the personnel are quite agressive to point it out.

First off, I'm not religous. But when you walk into this church it is quite stunning. There is a very peaceful vibe to the place and its hard not be impressed with the architecture and history. We walked in at around 8pm and seemed to...More

This is a very pretty Russian Orthodox Church, but they are only open certain hours, for example at 1600 to 1800 on a Wednesday afternoon. It is worth seeing even if you can not get into the Church
