Holy Spirit Church, museum of unusual frescos

A unique relic, a sculpture of “Stalingrad Madonna”, has been kept in the Wismar church of Holy Spirit since 2008. It was copied from a coal drawing made on a map by Kurt Reuber, a military doctor who participated in Stalingrad battle. The church is also notable for its unusual frescos. In particular, there is a crossword-like painting where you can read one phrase “Deo Gracias” (Thank God!) in 504 ways.

On the wooden ceiling of the church there are 26 baroque paintings of Bible stories in medallions. The 1320 church is well preserved and in the 1940s was used as a storehouse for sacral valuables from other churches of the city. The stained-glass windows from the main church of Wismar, Marienkirche, are still here. The Holy Spirit Church was built within a hospital for the poor, and for a long time beds for the hapless were located right in the church. It began to be used solely for religious purposes in the end of the 16th century.
