Haapsalu Bishop’s Castle Cathedral

The medieval Cathedral (1279) is the largest single-nave church in the Nordic and Baltic countries. The baptismal chapel is unique, and thanks to its good acoustics, is a wonderful concert venue.
Good to know: * During the Soviet period the building was a grain warehouse and there were plans to install a swimming pool. * During the full moon in August, you could see the White Lady in a church window. According to legend, a young priest brought his beloved into the castle dressed as a choirboy, however women were forbidden to enter the castle. The Bishop discovered the deception and had the girl walled into castle wall while she was still alive. Walking among the castle walls you will feel like you’re in a romantic old movie…
