  • It is believed that the Kretinga Lutheran Church was able to stand in the 16TH century, but during the counter-refoulation was destroyed. In 1802, the Kretinga Lutheran Parish received the Tsar's permission to build the church and not pay tax to the Catholic monk. In 1808, the church was established in a residential building. Later, the worship was kept in different places until 1850, the parish settled in a brick house, introduced the bell. In 1889, a fire was ravaged in the building. In 1897, a new brick church was built.
