St. George's Church sits just opposite the castle at the other side of the moat. It was built in 1487 but has been destroyed by fires three times. During the Sovjet times it was used to store medicine and when it was eventually given back to the Friars it was in a very poor condition and many of the from the beginning valuable paintings and other adornments were more or less destroyed, as can be seen on my pictures.

Entrance to the church is from the side of the marker on the map (link here) and not where Google Map has it.

Address: Papilio street 9.
Directions: Near the castle
