This church is very well preserved and is one of the most decorated building I have seen. It is very well worth a visit.

This church is covered on the inside with charming coats of armour that make it worth a quick stop - you do not need a lot of time so add it to your agenda ;)

St Mary's Cathedral, in Tallinn Estonia is also known as the Dome Church. It was originally built by the Danes in the 13th century and is the oldest church in Tallinn. The church was originally Catholic but it became Lutheran in the mid 1500s and remains so today. The church is beautiful inside with many coats-of arms from the 17th to 20th centuries adorning the walls. There are also many famous people entombed in the church. No pictures are allowed but that didn't seem to be enforced. As a visit to the Old Town area I highly recommend the Dome Church.

Lovely place to sit quietly on a Saturday to listen to a church organ playing. The coats of arms are amazing.

This church is probably not so amazing if you are doing a tour of several EU cities. I think what is beautiful about this church is not so much the interior but the white exterior of the walls. The sunset light gives this church a golden hues and then changes to pinks and blues. The right weather conditions are necessary but great photos can be had here.
