Lutheran churches in St. Petersburg and its environs are items of spiritual and cultural heritage. The exhibition includes historical materials and a presentation of restoration projects for churches that were destroyed or considerably damaged during the time of persecution and wars in the 20th century. For the last 30 years, modern architects have done a lot of work to revive churches, so they could open their doors for believers.
