Catholic Church in Jedwabno (German: Jedwabno), built in 1930-1932 for Catholic Masurians (very unusual, because Masuria was inhabited by over 90% of Protestants)

It was lutheran earlier, but now it's an orthodox church - Saint Michael's church.

I hope You convert more churches to Orthodox ones. This is much better than letting those great architecture and history die

Based on the numbers, it's seems more likely the Churches will do well and have money if converted to being Catholic rather than eastern Orthodox.

Based on the numbers, there are much more orthodox christians than catholic or any other religion ones. So it's obvious that catholic and lutheran churches were converted to orthodox and i agree that they've been saved only because of that. Of course, some inherited churches in the region stil belong to the catholic confession.

Lutheran Church of St.Nicholas in Mikołajki/Nikolaiken, Masuria (built in 1842)
















I hope to see more active and so beautifully restored (the church was burned down during the war) Protestant churches in Masuria in future.

Right. I misread the post and thought I was commenting on a Lithuanian location. Apologies.

I think that total number of believers is a crucial factor

Speaking about the Kaliningrad region i may say that people here are quite calm concerning religion unlike the rest of Russia and catholic/lutheran/etc countries if you understand what i mean
