So plain outside, so not inside. Services were going on while we peeked in the back. A beautiful choir of a few men ended in a chapel with fantastic accoustics.

Would have liked to spend time at this church which is one of two churches on Toompea Hill. Unfortunately, we used up a lot of time looking at other sights on the Hill and had to rush this visit. Going in and out of the...More

A few euros gets you into this church which has a mixture of metalwork, woodwork and carvings as well as coats of arms that stand out against the white walls. Take your time to soak up the different elements. A photographers dream here.

A striking exterior leads the visitor to a rather unusual interior, due to the many architectural styles employed during rebuilds through the centuries. Entrance to the Church is free if all one wants is to have a cursory look or light a candle. However, there...More

This is my favorite church in Tallinn, with its position on the Toom, its stark white exterior, and interesting mix of Catholic and Lutheran designs within. Coats of arms, special boxes for the most prominent families (including the mayor), and wonderful woodwork all make the...More

Lovely church we found whilst exploring the old town. It was red hot so the interior was lovely and cool. Hubbie climbed the tower and said the view was spectacular. Well worth a visit. Try and go early in the day to avoid the crowds.

The Dome Church situated in the Toompea area is very pretty and well worth visiting. Sadly it was closed for a service the day we visited .

As a Lifelong practicing Lutheran, I am disappointed that I could not take any non-flash photos of the church’s interior. That seems so unLutheran-like. However, at least I had a chance to scan the very dark interior housing coats of arms and other medieval paraphernalia....More

This is a terrible church. Great for outside pictures, but inside like a funeral dirge of sad music, and funerial type wreaths on the walls. After seeing the Russian Orthodox Cathedral this was a real downer. Stay outside.
