Since the first half of the 17th century, Kėdainiai was inhabited by a German Lutheran community. The single-nave Lutheran Church is unique due to the original 17th century wall paintings preserved inside it. The frescoes depict the Apostles Peter and Paul, as well as the evangelists John, Luke, Matthew and Mark. Famous 17th century Kėdainiai citizens were buried in the former cemetery (destroyed during the Soviet era). There are remaining memorial plaques of Adomas Freitagas (1608–1650) – a military engineer, fortress specialist, Ph.D. in philosophy and medicine, and personal doctor of Jonušas Radvila, Jonas Fišeris – pharmacist and head of the post office, town's doctor and Kėdainiai Church elder Fridrichas Kaneinis (1663–1710). German soldiers were buried here during the I and II World War. At the beginning of 1999, the church was returned to the Evangelical Lutheran community. Open during services, please negotiate other hours in advance. Priest Arvydas Malinauskas, tel. 8 601 36050.
