German church and Jewish synagogue
The church, or the church of St. George, is the oldestLutheran church not only in Samara, but also in the Volga region. His building blended seamlessly into local architectural paintings and sights of the Samara region as a whole. The facades of the church are executed in a bright Gothic manner.
After the meeting of the Lutheran Church Councilcommune was decided to purchase this building. But since the community did not have the finance for such a purchase, it turned to the German society for help. In 1865, Pundani (preacher) and Friedrich Meyer (pastor) consecrated the church foundation. The church was consecrated in honor of St. Georg.
