Thank You, Depeched, for another great set of pictures on beautiful Lithuanian churches.

I will continue with neo- styles boom of the 1900s.
A little trip to Lentvaris town. This time, a little bit larger than previous - 11 000 inhabitants, so be scared of what You gonna see. The church was built from the money donated by Vladislovas Tiškevičius.
The architect from Milan was hired Orsino Bongi and his colleague - Arrigo Boito. The chuch was built in 1910. Frescoes inside were painted by Jerzy Hoppen in 1943, who worked in couple of churches and used a lot of Lithuanian patriotic motifs. It was made in a great danger, because there was war, by Polish artist and Lithuanian Joint-stock company Statyba.

Long before the neo-Gothic boom, there were built mind-blowing churches in Lithuania. Probably the most stunning is Rokiškis church.
Rokiškis is a town of only around 20 000 inhabitants (counting with all the possible suburbs) near the border with Latvia. It is famous for its church, palace, park, historic old town.

A short history of Rokiškis church or an example on how Lithuanians should present every historical building in their country (with the influences shown)!?

The Russian Tsarist authorities were against the church in Rokiškis in 1860s. Then count Reinholdas Tyzenhauzas, who was Lithuanian-Polish of Baltic German origin, asked for help from Motiejus Valančius. Tyzenhauzas also was collecting signatures from Lithuanians of the whole district for the support of the church in Rokiškis. Finally they were successful and got the permission to build the church. A committee was made by Valančius, that was led by Lionginas Rekštis and later Stanislovas Šimkevičius.
A merchant from Liepaja, Latvia was hired to build the church, Baltic German - Friedrich Riege, who hired workers from Silesia, Latvia and Lithuania. The marble and sandstone for the church, was dug in Finland.
The church was started to be build in 1868 by the project of Prussian German Friedrich Gustaw von Schacht. German Max Paul Bertschy from Liepaja and another German Johann Daniel Felsko were helping him.
The church was finished in 1877, but the interiors. Soon count Tyzenhauzas died. His sister Marija/Marry continued financing and supervising the works. She decided to slightly rebuild the church from the outside too - to make it even more grandeur. She met an Austrian architect Werner Georg from Tyrol, then an architect of Vienna, who prepared a project. The main altar was made in Paris in the workshop of French P. Puossielgue – Rusand. Wooden canopy was made in Belgium, the workshop of Goyers. Much of other altars were too made by Goyers and P. Puossielgue – Rusand workshops.
The organ was made by Germans Walcker, workshop in Ludwigsburg, Württemberg. Czech from Austria - Rudolf Liehmann (a son of Antonín Liehmann - the teacher of Antonín Dvořák) was invited to play the organ. With him, more Czechs came to Rokiškis and the musical school was was opened in the town, an orchestra started, that played concerts every weekend. By the way, R. Liehmann married in Rokiškis and stayed to the end of his life there. He is buried in Rokiškis cemetery.
In 1882-1884, the tower by the project of Werner Georg, was built. Near the church, a chapel by Werner Georg, was built the same year. Bells for the tower were made in Warszawa by Polish Zwoliński firm. Near the gates of the church, a sculpture of Marry was created with the inscription: „Vartai Dangaus, melskis už mus“.

A little bit off topic, but the creator of these photographs also make photos of the nature of Rokiškis surroundings. Take a look: http://www.efoto.lt/user/9067/nuotraukos
I was really impressed by the photos.

Now some from the inside of the church.

Let us go to Rietavas town. Its church was designed by Prussian and Berlin architect Friedrich August Stüler on the money, donated by Oginskiai noble family, who resided there and on the money, donated by the local people.
The church was one of the first in Lithuania to be built in neo- styles and represents a fine example of Italian neo-Romanesque style. Take a look at this piece of great architecture in a town of 2000 inhabitants.

http://www.efoto.lt/node/744890

The building of the church started in 1853. Bishop Motiejus Valančius consecrated the corner stone in hope for a quick works but these were not ended before 1873/74.
Irenėjus Kleopas Oginskis, who was born and educated in Italy, started the works. By the way, he was helping, funding works of Lithuanian literature and history, helping Mikalojus Akelaitis, Simonas Daukantas, financing Lithuanian works by Laurynas Ivinskis. It is believed, that his son Bogdanas Oginskis, who continued the works, was actually a secret son of Alexander II of Russia. He was smuggling banned Lithuanian language press, condemned Kražiai massacre, where Russians slaughtered a lot of Lithuanian Catholics in a failed attempt to destroy the church. It is him, who was doing everything, to spread this shameful misdeeds in the whole world.

Telšiai town. Contemporary capital of Samogitia region and 12th largest city in Lithuania (pop. ~30 000).
Telšiai Cathedral. Mind-blowing, heart-stopping, brain-freezing interior of the building. Truly drop-dead gorgeous picture of sooo poor Lithuania.

Oh give me a break... Would you just stop with these ridiculous epithets. Your enthusiasm is admirable and all, but show some objectivity for once. That interior, albeit pretty, is no match in richness or cultural value to baroque interiors in Vilnius, let alone places like Italy, Portugal, etc.

And please, don't bother writing me a 2000 word long response. I couldn't care less. Just show some objectivity.

Thank You, for letting not express my emotions, Dear Leader.

http://i.imgur.com/z5rYv.jpg

First of all, Vilnius is Vilnius, Telšiai is n-th town in Lithuania, hope we both agree on this.
Secondly, how much time, do You think, it would take us to make such frescoes and how much money they would have to pay us for the work in current prices? Just curious!
To make my response longer, have you seen a lot of such church interiors in our neighbors like Estonia, Latvia or other Protestant countries like Sweden?
Don't bother answering, it really doesn't matter as it is as a rule in the world churches like these by Viennese or Berlin major architects in villages with altars made in Paris and vaults, decorated by the artists from Milan and Rome.
And in Italy there will always be nicer churches. So what? Now we need admire only 5 voted churches from Italy, and others like mooo moooo, then go and close all the threads outside Apennine peninsula?
As for objectivity, ask some from our friends like jose valderama from Panama-Poland, thus I am just a biased "chauvinista lituanas" (see the tags of the thread).
So, don't be so irritable, pedant, snobbish, imperious and authoritarian, let me express my amusement, happiness, admiration, stop nag at the words, but contribute something yourself to our great thread.
Bye.

I'm always impressed by fact, that even in XVII century elements of gothic architecture was still present, and even some churches/closters were in 100% designed in that style! In Warsaw We have a baroque church with gothic presbytery built just in mid of XVIIc: http://panoramy.zbooy.pl/360/show.ht...ze&lang=p&t=32

I belive that context of ekhmm... post-gothic(?) architecture from 1500-1800 period is quite poorly investigated here and really deserved seperate thread.

Btw, nice churches

Šilutė is a town of aprox. 20 000 inhabitants in the Western part of Lithuania, the region of Lithuania Minor. It was attached back to Lithuania only in 1923 and during the interwar period it was bilingual city, equally inhabited by Lithuanians and Germans. Lithuanians in Lithuania Minor were of Protestant faith. Hugo Scheu, benefactor of Šilutė, prominent cultural figure, who did a lot collecting Lithuanian folklore, opening the first museum, etc., decided to build a church in Šilutė (as well as fire station, school,...) as there were 3000 people already and no church. He got all the necessary permissions and gave a land plot for it. The works were started in 1913, but were resumed only after the war, in 1924. Kurt Gutknecht from Königsberg was welcomed to design the church. Organs were made in Elbing, „Wittek“ workshop. Stained glasses were created by Emil Krüger from Königsberg and Richard Pfeiffer created the frescoes of 120 prominent figures. Near the altar - Jesus and the Universe. Then 120 figures, who worship God: Adam and Eve, Moses, Noah, John the Apostle, Mary, David, John the Baptist, Martin Luther, Philipp Melanchthon, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin, Johann Sebastian Bach, Georg Friedrich Händel and many others. The church was finished in 1926 and was one of the most splendid in Minor Lithuania.
