Church of the Saviour, Baku

#13 of 21 in Historic Sites in Baku
Church · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
A Lutheran church in central Baku consecrated in 1899, this is one of the key landmarks of Baku's Oil-Boom era. It was built by German architect Adolf Eichler and functioned as a church until 1936, when Baku's Lutheran community was disbanded. Fortunately the tall Gothic building survived Stalin's anti-religious campaign, however, and today operates as a concert hall.
