St. Peter's Church (Rostock) in Germany

Rating: 8,6/10 (600 votes)
ImageSt. Peter's Church (Rostock) is a temple of the Lutheran order in the German Rostock. The oldest Hanseatic church in the city (the Church of St. James was destroyed during the Second World War, and the other two - the Church of St. Mary and the Church of St. Nicholas - have survived).

Construction of the church began in the middle of the 14th century ... In its place there was a small church built in 1252. The church with three naves is made in the brick Gothic style characteristic of the Hanseatic period in Germany.

The spire of the church was 127 meters, but in 1543 it was damaged by a lightning strike. In 1578, a new spire was built, with a height of 117 meters. During the Second World War, the building was damaged again, but restoration began almost immediately, as soon as peacetime came.
