St. Catherine's Church in Kadrina

to map

1490

Kadrina church may have existed already in the end if the XIII century, but it was significantly expanded in the end of the XV century.

New church had three aisles, narrow windows, thick walls and the room on top of the vault could be used as hideout. The tower was added in the beginning of the XVI century.

Building was devastated in 1702, and the tower was not repaired until 1818. War torched the church again in 1941, but most of the interior remained intact. In 1961, the church was restored under the supervision of Villem Raam, a prominent Estonian historian of architecture.
