Rüütli tänav 9, Kesklinna linnaosa, Tallinn

View on map

The New Almshouse that was built for the city poor became the church for the Swedish congregation after the Great Northern War. The restored church, which was used as a gymnasium during the Soviet period, has been re-consecrated. The church has a Baroque altar (Joachim Armbrust) and pulpit as well as a unique baptistery (Christian Ackermann, 1680).
Thanks to its good acoustics, the Swedish St. Michael’s Church is a popular concert venue. The Museum of Estonian Swedes is also located in the church, which is open to visitors by prior arrangement.

Worth a quick Visit

The church is nice but not nearly as fancy as some of the bigger more grand churches in the city. Unless you are really interested just visit some of the churches in the area.
