Churches, Brick Gothic

St. John's Church Zirkow is a brick church with boulder base from the 15th century.

As early as 1313, a priest is attested for the former farming village of Zirkow. However, today's brick church with boulder base dates back to the first half of the 15th century. The two-bay choir with ribbed vault was built first. A craftsman Bartholomäus Blome carved his name and the year 1417 into a vault cap. The narrow church tower with a shingle-roofed octagonal steeple dates from the same period. The tower bears a bronze bell from 1469 and a steel bell from 1929. A special feature of the interior is the pulpit altar from the 1st half of the 18th century. Double columns flank the pulpit basket. Stairs descending on both sides connect the altar with the two confessionals, which are now used as a sacristy. The baptismal font stands in the center aisle on the way to the altar. Above it hovers a baptismal angel, typical of many Pomeranian churches, from the same period as the pulpit altar. In 1948 the vault paintings were uncovered. In addition to ornaments, grotesque masks can be seen. The mechanical organ was built around 1859 by the Stralsund organ building company A. Mehmel and has nine stops.
