A visit to this historic church will, at least might,... enlighten and/or enrich any visitor's
visual or mental impressions whether religiously inclined or not.
There's a lot to see, a lot to learn about things we, generally, do not often think about.
In any event, it was a memorable visit and rather delightful to spend the time in
this church, by whose 'sacred' atmosphere one seemed surrounded, also enjoying its
cooler airs on a hot day outside.

A very nice church with plenty of details to study. Enjoyed the Seven deadly sins on the top part of the wooden crenelation of the altar area. Not easy to spot and the postcard which shows the carvings are a collage of pictures. Look up when you are looking at the carving of the hunters from Novgorod. Also - don't miss the carving of a man with a club threatening to knock down all trespassers to the shop owners benches in the church. So much for the Christian non-violence policy...

Quite amazing! This is the oldest church in Stralsund and was started in 1234! Having seen a few large churches on this trip, this one was a real surprise. It is in the middle of a restoration both inside and outside and the paintings and murals etc are being given a spruce up to return them to their original colours. The work done so far is brilliant. When finished it will make the place more amazing. Inside there are an amazing collection of medieval paintings, carvings and altars. If you come here it should be number one on your list. The entry is €6 per couple and you also get a free guide in English!

Nice but seen it all before. If you have not seen it before then enjoy because it is worth it as an example of Hansiatic architecture.

This is a large church / cathedral in the centre of Strasund, with an entry fee of 2 euros. Although impressive from the outside, the interior is very poor and extensively damaged. It is undergoing repairs and to be honest, the interior is more like a building site, but still worth a visit
