REQUEST INFORMATION View on map

St. Paul’s Church in Tartu, Estonia’s only Art Nouveau sanctuary, was completed in 1919. The spire is 102.9 metres high and the viewing platform is 87.02 metres above sea level. The viewing platform is approximately 30 metres from the ground. In the spire, you can see the two steel church bells.
The bells were cast in Bochum, Germany, in 1922, and were first rung in Tartu on Christmas Eve 1923. The glass domed bell tower can only be accessed from the stairs, and along the way, you can explore a small gallery on the history of the church.
The church has a columbarium, the largest organ in South Estonia, and a bookstore.
