St Catherine’s Lutheran Church in Karja

This small, unique and beautiful medieval church has been continuously active as a sanctuary for more than 700 years.

St Catherine’s Church in Karja was built in the 13th century and has maintained its original shape in an almost unchanged fashion. In this country church one can find refined stone sculptures, stories of saints carved in stone, a unique Calvary bas relief, and unique mural paintings on the walls. On the vaults of the choir-part there are magic ceiling signs, and over the vestry-room a room with a fireplace can be found.
