There are baroque Lutheran churches in Latvia but they are smaller and not as ornate as the ones from Catholic countries. For ex.

Baltezers church

Kekava church

There are also Catholic Vilnius baroque style churches too (In the former area of The Commonwealth ):

Aglona church

cool

Thanks for the above examples!

Baltezers church is great example of mixing styles luteran church build with baroque influence! Same for Kekava! Thanks!

Aglona church, built late but very good example of baroque coming from the previous history of this place. Nice.

=======================
Daugavpils church (Vissvētākās Jaunavas Marijas Bezvainīgās ieņemšanas Romas katoļu baznīca) - built 1905, style eclectic

In whole Commonwealth baroque lived much longer than in the remaining Europe (well into late 18th c.). Most of such two-towered baroque churches (which are different from early and middle baroque churches similar to those in Italy) were built around the middle 18th century. Building of neoclassical architecture have only started at around 1770-1780s.

But I guess this is off topic.

Very interseting. It seems to me that the churches from Aglona and Daugavpils are quite similar to some examples of "catcholic" baroqe.

Question is: Is there any baroque outside this land where majority was luteran/protestant and orthodox?

So far on page one we have some nice examples of baroque variations, very rare tries as baroque except St. Petersburg (as per this city's nature/history/origin) is practically non-existent.
You've lost me; aren't you considering Petersburg as a part of north east Europe?
