St. Olav’s Church Tower and Observation Platform

Lai tänav 50, Kesklinna linnaosa, Tallinn

View on map

The gothic steeple of this church, which was completed in the early 16th century, previously made the church one of the tallest buildings in the world (soaring to 159 metres tall according to some sources). Historians disagree, however, on the details and interpretation of the measurements, and some even think that the steeple has never been higher than 115–125 metres. Nevertheless, the church has always been a grand structure, and its 124-metre tower is considered one of the symbols of Tallinn. There are 232 steps leading up to the observation platform!
The spire and observation platform are closed during 2021.

Not a lot to see inside

If you don't climb the tower to see views of the city, there's no point of entering, as the church is very plain from the inside.

Great building and nice sunday service

A Beautifull and quite massive building. The inside is nice. It goes with a wonderful history of the spiritual revival in soviet days. Ask your guide to tell you about it if you have one. The best...
