A silent Orthodox Church, Märjamaa, Estonia

Visited by Skkye 5.4.2014. My couchsurfing host in Märjamaa introduced this place to me when we were biking around the town. The evening light was perfectly warm and made this place feel safe and peaceful. We climbed in from the window and jumped to the floor which was covered with fallen wooden parts of the roof. We were moving slowly since there was a great possibility to step on a rusty nail. One of my favourites was a huge wooden bug hanging from the roof, in my mind it's the lonely caretaker of the church. Somehow I still felt the sacredness in this place, even though it must have been abandoned for a long time - maybe it was the spirit of hundreds of prayers people had read there long ago.
