Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church of the Mother of God with Three Hands in Tallinn

This medieval building next to the walls of the Old Town of Tallinn has only ever served a secular purpose during its history, and the Ukrainian congregation has turned it into a sanctuary which is both historical and modern. 

The church has a small monastery which is the centre of the Ukrainian religious and cultural life. If you pass it on the Laboratooriumi Street, you can take your troubles to God, and slip a piece of paper with your prayer request through the small letter slot.
By ordering a tour, you will see the church, the Ukrainian Cultural Centre school, Labora workshops, handmade paper and postcards, Tallinn toys, ornamented eggs, etc. It is also possible to participate in a variety of master classes.
