Käina Church Ruins / Vorstellung

Construction on this church was started about the same time that Columbus discovered America (1492). Like in Pühalepa, it replaced a wooden church that was built a few hundred years earlier.
Its walls were skillfully constructed out of pieces of limestone with a precision that would be difficult to duplicate even today. The ceiling in the altar area is particularly impressive and here you can see tombs in the floor dating back to the 1500's. The interior of the church was once very beautiful. There was a choir loft over the door opposite the altar area. There was also a handmade organ built by the father of the famous Estonian composer Rudolph Tobias.
