The Cathedral of Saint Mary the Virgin in Tallinn (also known as the Dome Church) was first mentioned in records in 1233. It was dedicated to the Virgin Mary seven years later.

Worthy of attention inside the church are the gravestones from the 13th-18th centuries and the coat of arms epitaphs dating from the 17th-20th centuries.

The most famous people to be buried in the church include renowned 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.

Tickets to the tower cost €5 (discounted tickets: €3).

Prayers with organ music each Wednesday at 17:00 (free to attend)

Organ music on Saturdays from 12:00-12:30 (donation of €2 gratefully accepted)
