St. Simeon’s and St. Anne’s Church in Tallinn

The church, belonging to Estonian Orthodox Church, was built between 1755 and 1870. This is an "Admiralty church" that is said to have been built by Russian sailors on the wreck of a ship. When Estonian Republic was first established, the sanctuary was handed over to an Estonian congregation.

In the Soviet times, this small church by the sea was used as a sports hall; today, it has been restored and is once again used as a church. It has unique woodcut Greek-style iconostasis, pulpit and pews.

On the ground floor, you will find a shop selling church paraphernalia and literature.
In the tower, there is a church textile museum that is open from Tuesday to Friday from 11 am to 5 pm, on Saturday from noon to 2 pm and on Sunday from noon to 3 pm. Entrance is free.
