Tallinn St. Mary's Cathedral (Dome Church) and bell tower

In Tallinn St. Mary's Cathedral (first mentioned in 1233), you find gravestones from the 13th-18th centuries and coat of arms epitaphs dating from the 17th-20th centuries.

The most famous people to be buried in the church include Swedish military officer Pontus De la Gardie; his wife, Swedish King Johann III's daughter Sophia Gyllenhelm; Admiral Samuel Greigh; and Admiral Adam Johan von Krusenstern – the first man to lead a Russian round-the-world voyage.

In addition to enjoying the beautiful interior of the church, visitors can climb its 69-metre Baroque bell tower and admire an excellent view of the city.
A donation should be made for a visit to the church; for visiting the bell tower, a ticket should be purchased .
