On the 28.09.2012 we will hold open historical lessons in the Pöide church, by SMC Project Manager Kaire Tooming to the local students. St. Mary’s church in Pöide can be seen from afar due to the flatness of the surrounding landscape. The size and massiveness of the church make it look more like a castle from the 13th century. Today Pöide church is empty, the roof is leaking and the windows are without class. But where are lot of history. The open lessons will rise awareness about the rural churches and the local history. The lessons will be hold in the Pöide church, Pöide vald, Saaremaa, Estonia. Contact person Ann Vainlo, ann.vainlo@kanut.ee
