It costs a mere 1,50 Euro to go in and look around this church. Charging to visit a church is not unusual in this old town. But, this church is worth more than this very low price. There are wonderful biblical paintings on the balcony....More

This church boasts the oldest timepiece in Tallin, a painted clock dating from the 1600's. Very famous. Worth the visit.

We arrived here when there was a service going on, so we were unable to enter. When we passed by later it was closed. This was a shame as I had wanted to see the Bernt Notke altarpiece and the decorated wooden galleries.

With its bright white facade and atmosphere of many centuries it is a wonderful holy place to visit. The stepwise gable leading to the lovely hexagonal tower is marvellous. Interior wise is redolent of its longevity. The main altar is exceptional and the exquisite panels...More
