Ss Peter and Paul's Church

Ss Peter and Paul's Church (March 2014)

Ss Peter and Paul's Church was built between 1833 and 1838 to replace an earlier version of the church. In form it is slightly unusual as instead of the usual cube-building it comprises a dome with 12 windows on top of a rotunda. A bell tower was later added to this in 1913. The church was closed in the 1930s and its rotunda collapsed as it was hit in a Luftwaffe bombing raid during the Second World War. The church was later restored in 1947 due to its architectural value but only returned to the Orthodox Church in 2011.
