Once, at the present site of the square located on the eastern side of the town hall, there was an Evangelical Church. Work on its construction began in the second decade of the XIX century. Earlier, residents of the evangelical religion has to settle for the room located in the building of the old town hall.
On May 3, 1818, pastor Teodor Gutt laid the coal stone under the new temple, and he hid information in a metal box concerning the sponsors and circumstances of the rise of the new house of prayer. After five years, the construction has been completed. On August 3, 1823 took place the solemn dedication of the temple.
The cost of the elevation of the church amounted to 16.751 crowns 15 cents. The building was plastered and has narrow arched windows, most probably inspired by the Gothic buildings of the medieval period. The narrow tower, flattened on top, has proudly dominated over the market.
The church served the religious needs of the evangelical church until 1945, later it became inactive.
In the years of 1955–1957 the temple has been demolished due to the poor technical condition.
