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.

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 in helping Estonia after WW1.

We liked this church. The plaques inside are so imposing. Go here, wander around, look up and get lost in the medieval ages.

Came across this pretty white church with the black steeple during a walking tour of Old Town. Regrettably, didn't have time to go inside.

Stumbled across the church almost by accident and decided to have a look inside. It was lovely and you are welcome to take photographs.

Whilst not as ornate as other Churches in Tallinn the unique charm of St Marys is the multitude of coats of arms from the various nobility buried there.

The lovely facade, predominantly white, with ornate pinnacle atop a clock, was delightful to see as first sight. It was a felicitous introduction for what lay within. Heraldry comprising multitudes of coats of arms was the overwhelming feature inside. The walls are festooned with emblems...More
