St. John’s Church

Vabaduse väljak 1, Kesklinna linnaosa, Tallinn

View on map

This three-nave church in neo-Gothic style at the heart of the city on Freedom Square was completed in 1867.
The stylish design of the altar and the painting Christ on the Cross (Karl Gottlieb Wenig, colourful stained-glass windows) and the chandeliers, which are older than the building itself, make the church radiant. The oldest church bell with an Estonian text is also located in the church tower (1872). 
In the St. John's Church you can admire Dolores Hoffmann's ten stained-glass windows, which tell various stories from the Gospel of John. The windows of John and Luke the Evangelist are illuminated in the dark.

This Church make me impressed everytime!

This yellow church looks perfect! Everytime I visit Tallinn, I visit JAANI KIRIK. I like everything: interior, silent inside and this wonderful geometry of building of church.

A modest church but worth a visit

A very modest church certainly not as impressive as others in the city, but still worth a visit. Not too far from the center (walking distance)

Nice church

Went to the church today and when I walked inside there was organ and fuete music playing. The acoustics were very good. Outside is interesting but the inside is very nice.
