#2 of 6 in Historic Sites in Lutsk
The building known as the Lutheran Church in Lutsk, Ukraine, is in fact now a Baptist church. It is located in "Old Lutsk", the historical and architectural part of the city.
The Church was built in 1907 for the city's Lutheran community. From the time it was built, it was the principal place of worship for the Germans living in Volyn. The church fell into decline as a result of the Second World War. From the 1950s to the 1980s, the church was used as an archive. Restorating the church in 1990s, the Baptist community of Lutsk became the new owner of the church after Church Restitution in Ukraine in the early 1990s. The spire of the Lutheran Church is the most significant feature of the church's architecture.
In the 18th century, the Carmelite Catholic church of the Virgin Mary was built on the site. In 1741, Anatol Bazalski donated 19,000 zloty for the church and for the Carmelite community from the village of Borokhiv. The church was built in the Baroque style. The walls and ceiling were adorned with frescos. Damaged by fire, the church was rebuilt in 1764. After being totally gutted by fire in 1845, the building lay in ruins for a period until the debris was removed, leaving small fragments of the walls and the foundations.

  • We have in Hrodna have almost the same building, so I wanted to see the twin brother-Church in Lutsk. Inside were not, and did not go, but the building itself is very beautiful, in the best traditions of the Lutheran architecture-neo-Gothic building of yellow brick. A number of convenient parking. Being in Lutsk, see and this monument of architecture.
