St Olaf's Church in Tallinn, the city's biggest medieval structure, took its name from the sainted Norwegian king Olav II Haraldsson. The church was first mentioned in 1267. It became one of the main churches in the Lower Town and formed its own congregation, which at first mostly comprised of Scandinavian merchants and craftsmen, and few Estonians.

The evangelical preachings of the then chaplain of the church, Zacharias Hasse, led to the start of the reformation in Tallinn in 1523.

Did you know...?
*Lightning is known to have struck the tower of the church around ten times, three of which led to extensive fires – in 1625, 1820 and 193.

The stairs to go up might "kill" you. But even if the don't, they'll kill your legs. But it's worth it. The problem is if you meet someone else while going up. The view is great. You get to see the...
