Kodavere, Lümati, Pala , Jõgevamaa 58.692261, 27.150285 ‎ 58° 41' 32.14", 27° 9' 1.03" Первые упоминания о деревянной церкви датируются 15ым веком. Современное однонефное каменное здание в стиле позднего классицизма было построено на месте старой деревянной постройки в 1775-1777 годах (освящено в 1777 году). Постройка по форме напоминает корабль, башня которой была изготовлена в то же время, что и церковь. В восточной части церкви расположена ризница, в западной части фасада расположен треугольный фронтон и восмиугольная башня, увенченная куполом-луковицей. Алтарь и кафедра – ручная работа. Алтарный рисунок «Хождение по воде» была написана Юнкером в 1877ом году. Также на алтаре изображена картина «Воскрешение» (18ый век) и «Колгата» (первая половина 19ого века). Внутреннее церковное убранство датируется началом 20ого века. Из посёлка Кодавере к церкви ведёт красивая аллея. Кладбище Кодавере находится на берегу Чудского озера, оно было освящёно в 1773ем году.

Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon and the designer of the primary statue was Daniel Chester French.

Dedicated in 1922, it is one of several monuments built to honor an American president. It has always been a major tourist attraction and since the 1930s has been a symbolic center focused on race relations.

The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, 'The Gettysburg Address' and his 'Second Inaugural Address'. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Since 2010, approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually.
