  • Important site

    Site of one of the oldest buildings in Tallinn. Behind the heavy doors there is an attractive and warm space. Very impressive coats of arms decorate the church.

  • The Easter Church

    It was Easter, and the access was free. Very friendly people told about the church . We were invited to beat the Service, but, unfortunately, we were lack of time.

  • Well worth the small entrance fee

    Lovely old church with a very different style interior with some lovely German epitaph plaques and wood carvings as well as some interesting memorial plaques for the Royal Navy from their involvement...
