Grote Stadskerk, Paramaribo
In the 18th century, freed slaves visited Grote Stadskerk to worship and express their gratitude. Started in 1774 and complete in 1847, the holy structure stands at 30 m (98 ft) tall. Walk inside to see an 11 m (36 ft) high nave accompanied by two galleries running along the walls of the upper floors. From the walls to the church organ, this holy structure is almost completely white inside and out. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Paramaribo fast, fun, and easy.
Grote Stadskerk Reviews
I visited a sundaymorning service in june 2018. I was heartly welcomed the gate to the frontdoor. the sermon was as modest as the church's ambiance. A pleasant experience! more »
Meestal is het op de zondag open en als je geluk hebt, door de weeks ook, wanneer er een dienst is. Houten gebouw in hartje stad en het is gewoon niet te missen, als in de stad bent. Hele oude kerk. more »Usually it's on the Sunday open and if you're lucky, on week-days also, when a service is. Wooden building in the heart of the city and it's just not to be missed, as in the city. Very old church.
