The Evangelical Church in Krakow am See is located in the old town directly on the market square.
The most important monument in the town of Krakow am See is the Lutheran church. The brick building from the 13th century, which German settlers originally erected as a hall building, is the oldest building in the town and was repeatedly remodeled after many town fires in the 17th and 18th centuries.
Today the church is classified as a transitional building from Romanesque (round arch) to Gothic (pointed arch) architectural style.
The present bell tower on the west side of the building dates back to 1762 and contains three bells of different sizes. They were cast in 1719, 1755 and 1871 respectively. In 1972 the tower received a copper plate roofing and the spire a cross visible from afar.
In 1990, the load-bearing components, such as the beams, ceiling and floor, were so weakened by dry rot and decay that there was a danger of collapse. Renovation work became necessary. The side galleries were removed and a winter church was installed.
Entering the interior, you will see a beautiful altar structure with carved relief. On the north wall towards the altar there are coats of arms of various noble families from the 18th and 19th centuries. The church treasury includes silver-plated and gold-plated chalices with engravings of their donors. The organ from 1893 was removed 100 years after its installation. Organ specialists restored the organ and took only a "thank you" for their work. In 1994 all restoration works were completed.
