The Dominican Monastery(the town of Vyborg, 13 Vyborgskaya Street). In 1318 the wooden Dominican church was in Vyborg. In 1392 the construction of the Dominican Monastery of Black Brother was begun; in 1471-1481 the new stone cathedral was built on the old foundation. In the beginning of the 17th c the Dominican Order had lost its power; buildings of the Dominican Monastery were partly dismantled, the cathedral was adapted for the granary. In 1613-1614 the cathedral was restored and adapted for the Lutheran Finnish church. In 1628 the church was damaged by fire and it was rebuilt for about 20 years. In 1643 the tower of the town hall was adapted for the bell tower. In 1828 - 1833 the major repairs of the church was made and it was rebuilt (design of the architect K.L. Engel). The church was closed after the capture of Vyborg by Soviet troops in March 1940. The bell tower, damaged in 1941, has lost its roof; in 1958-1959 it was preserved, in 1979-81 the bell tower was restored (design of the architect I.А. Khaustova, the architect I.P. Lyubarova and the architect Т.V. Konikh).
