First mention of the St. Peter's Church is in records dating to 1209 and until nowadays it's side walls have been preserved from that time. Nowadays church tower is 123 metres high but interesting that back in 15th Century it was higher - 136 metres. The church suffered in fires both in 1st and 2nd World Wars, it was rebuilt in Soviet times and the current tower is from that time, just around 40 years old.
