This is a building bordering Rakvere Freedom Square.

Rakvere Paulus Freedom Church is considered to be one of the most prominent sacral buildings in 1930s Estonia.

In 1935, architect Alar Kotli designed a building for Paul's congregation. The church operated in the building about 10 years, then it was rebuilt into a gym.

At the moment there is Rakvere Open Youth Center.

The priority of the city of Rakvere in the coming years is the completion of a multifunctional music house named after Arvo Pärt, an honorary citizen of the city.

The world-famous composer Arvo Pärt spent his childhood and youth in Rakvere, and this is where his music studies began.
