This church is located close to the Russian Orthodox Cathedral in the Upper Town area. We were very interested in seeing the interior but when we opened the door the sign stated that tourists should not enter. We did not see any events in the church so was surprised that we could not see the interior. Good luck to future tourists!

This is a important landmark in Tallinn. While it is not a particularly ornate church it is still beautiful. The most impressive feature is the alter. It is an unusual work of art. Built with scaffolding, which I think is temporary though not positive! Sill a magnificent picture of Christ on the cross surrounded by statues is awe inspiring. The organ in the loft is also an impressive feature and the vaulted ceiling adds to grandeur. It is worth the two euro. An additional three euro is required to climb the tower.

I visited the Dome Church when visiting Tallinn as a tourist, because my guide book recommended it as a must-see. I thought it was fine, and I'm glad I visited it, but it was quite busy, and we were kept roped off so you could only look in. I much preferred the Niguiliste Church in Tallinn - I would definitely recommend that church over this because there's more to look round and it felt more welcoming to tourists and offering more of an experience.

The cathedral was built in the 13th cent on the site of a former Danish wooden church. Work carried on in the 14th and 15th cents. The western tower was only built in the 18th cent. The organ was completed in 1914. The cathedral is a Lutheran church.
