  • Like everything in Amber, Pal'mnikena Church was built on money m. Becker, owner of quarries built it for their employees. To the right of the entrance in German written date bookmark Church and the completion of construction, it was built in neo-Gothic style. After WWII the Church decor, organ, stained-glass Windows and inscribed bells were lost. In the 90-ies of the building of the Church was transferred to the RUSSIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH and consecrated the present Patriarch Kirill, Metropolitan of Smolensk and Kaliningrad then. I found it a bit strange is inside because the architecture, although the famous Ayia Sofia in Istanbul was the Byzantine Church. The main thing that the Church has been restored, is not destroyed and used for its intended purpose, it is unlikely that on the territory of present Amber large numbers of people professing Lutheranism, knowing the difficult history of the region. At the entrance to the Temple of the face of Christ from amber and strange amber wood, between which branches on chains hanging icon of the Kazan Mother of God. The Church is an object of cultural heritage.

  • 3 January 1892 year at Palmnicken was consecrated the new Evangelical Church, built by industrialist Maurice Becker. It had a body and two inscribed Bell from Shtantiena and Becker. The Church was built in the style of the Church of St. George (Englische Kirche zu St. George) can in the garden of the castle of Berlin "" Monbizhu "" (Schloss 25) for the needs of Anglican communities. It is known that the Church in Berlin was designed by German Julius Carl Raschdorff, who specially travelled to Britain to explore the English churches. For the construction the architect chose the Silesian granite and glacial boulders, roof tile patterned bedspreads. Church of St. George was opened for worship on November 19 1885 year. Unfortunately, compare the original and its copy in Pal'mnikene difficult-Berlin Church bombed in 1944 year. But if you really interesting, the Web site was built after the war, the Church of Saint George, there is one picture of the old pre-war Anglican Church. By comparing the images, we'll see how similarities and significant architectural differences. Put the same overall similarity silhouette and what exactly similar Spire, stained glass Windows and granite boulders, from which both buildings. In the post-war period in the building of the Church was then Club billiard room, gymnasium and, finally, a warehouse. Organ and stained glass were lost. In the year 1990 polurazvalivsheesja the building of the Church was transferred to the Russian Orthodox Church. January 13, 1991 year Temple of Kazan icon of the mother of God was blessed by Metropolitan Kirill of Smolensk and Kaliningrad. It should be noted that with the Palace, "" Monbizhu "" connected stay in Berlin of Tsar Peter I and usually with this moment connect two points: the defeat of the environment elegant Palace zaguljavshej Imperial retinue (evidence contradictory and their reliability is questionable) and donation to Peter amber Cabinet of King Friedrich Wilhelm i. online meets even a quotation from the letter of a German Princess: "the King without any ceremonies asked the King to give him this statue and several other and the King could not refuse. Similarly, he enrolled in a different Office, where all the walls were made of amber. This cabinet was considered only in its kind and cost enormous money King Friedrich I.
