Historic Sites

The historic building, decorated with a fantastic sun clock, twined vine and more like a fairytale castle, was and still is in fact a city hydropathic hospital. The tower, built in 1908 to a design by Otto Walter Kukkuk, used to supply water to the entire city! Today, the bizarre tower is not used for its intended purpose, but it does not cease to attract travelers and remains a visiting card of the city.

Church of St. Seraphim of Sarov

A truly amazing temple that combines the exterior of a Lutheran church with traditional Orthodox interior decoration. Do the silhouettes of the building seem vaguely familiar? It's not surprising, because Kukkuk, the author of the city water tower, put his hand to the construction. The Kirch was built in the early XX century with donations from local residents, in Soviet times was given to the gym, and in 1992, already by the forces of Orthodox believers was restored and consecrated as a church in honor of St. Seraphim of Sarov.
