Object's description


The church of the community of the Evangelical Church of the Augsburg Confession was built between 1876 and 1877 in the Old Town, nearby the Castle. The construction was a result of a constantly growing number of the members of the church in Olsztyn. This was also the cause of the later expansion of the building.

This red-brick building was constructed according to the Neo-Gothic style. A characteristic feature of the plain body of the building is a frieze under the roof. Another external architectural decorative element is a wimperg over the main entrance – it is a decorative trim in the shape of a lofty triangle.

Inside, within the presbytery, there is a main altar in the shape of a cross. It is one of the elements of modest furnishings, along with the pipe organ located on the matroneum, and stained glass.

Over the body of the building there is a 43m-high clock tower. The three bells hung there were made in the 1920s. According to the records, the original bells were taken during WWI and re-melted into cannons.
