1877-1880 as it is very little territory around, completely squeezed.

Church teacher Eenok Haamer, who has served the church for 56 years. His talk is very breath taking and moving.

The cornerstone of Mustvee Church was laid on 5 May 1877. In 1878, a tower built on a weak foundation collapsed. The Neo-Gothic church was completed and consecrated on July 27, 1880. On May 11, 1939, during the renovation work, the roof of the church caught fire. The fire could not be extinguished - only the stone walls were preserved. The church was restored and consecrated on Christmas Eve 1939.

Odeon of Herodes Atticus

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus is a stone theatre structure located on the southwest slope of the Acropolis of Athens. It was built in 161 AD by the Athenian magnate Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla. It was originally a steep-sloped theater with a three-story stone front wall and a wooden roof made of expensive cedar of Lebanon timber. It was used as a venue for music concerts with a capacity of 5,000. It lasted intact until it was destroyed and left in ruins by the Heruli in 267 AD.

The audience stands and the orchestra (stage) were restored using Pentelic marble in the 1950s. Since then it has been the main venue of the Athens Festival, which runs from May through October each year, featuring a variety of acclaimed Greek as well as International performances.
