The Pühalepa Church is Hiiumaa’s oldest stone church. In 1255, the German Order started the construction of a stone fortress-church. Initially lacking a steeple, the arched stone church was completed in the 14th century; construction of the steeple started in 1770. After it renovation in the 19th century, Crosses of Malta were painted on the walls that are primarily associated with the membership of the Ungern-Sternberg family members in this Order.  One of the inauguration crosses has survived on the wall of the choir room.  The burial chapel of the von Stenbock family is in the churchyard. Good acoustics makes it a very special place to enjoy the concerts!

Hiiumaa is an island in the Baltic Sea and the second largest island in Estonia, rich by versatile, beautiful and intact nature and nice people. There are one thousand and one reasons for people to come here back again and again. Thanks to the surrounding sea, the climate on Hiiumaa is a bit different from the one on the continent. There are more sunny days and less rainy day. The inhabitants of Hiiumaa are peaceful and tolerant by character. They live close to nature and are children of nature in their soul. The most important thing is to have a sense of humor – people of Hiiumaa love joke.
