Evangelical Lutheran Church

The history of Lutherans of Kretinga dates back to the 16th century. The Lutheran community had more than one prayer home during the period of several centuries till the neo-Gothic church in the Town Hall Square was sanctified in 1899. More than one person contributed to emergence of the church. For example, although counts Tiškevičius went to the Roman Catholic Church, they donated almost all logs necessary for construction. Kretinga Jewish community donated money to Lutherans so that they could purchase stained-glass. Even the King of Prussia Wilhelm II donatted a large amount of money for equipment of the main altar. The greatest assets of the church is the united community. However, it has material treasures. If one keeps his head up in the Lutheran Church, he/she can see the organs manufactured in 1785 by the famous organ master Johannes Preuss in Königsberg.
