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.

    Once a medieval ware house, the building was destroyed by fire in 1894 and then renovated to house the Ukrainian Cultural Centre in 2000. Free to go in. Displays are both at street level and down in...
