  • The Dome Church is on the Toompea hill, few hundred meters after the Russian Orthodox Nevsky Cathedral. It's the oldest church in Tallin, since it's built on the wooden foundations of a 12cent Danish ...  more »
  • Absolutely nepompeznaja Church, very simple on the outside and inside. There are many places where you can sit, have a beautiful body, you can get into the music hour and listen to the game on this instrument. The church operates. At the entrance and ticket office, and a souvenir shop. Admission is 2 euros, you can climb the Tower (in my +3). Inside the Cathedral on the walls more than 100 wooden boards with coats of arms and symbols of famous families, at one time it was very popular and fashionable. If you are good, then a lot to find yourself. So much so that photography is free. Here and outside of burial of famous people, and ... attention! Underneath each plate of the Cathedral is the Tomb. Please note that all plates are numbered. Earlier it was burying noble people within churches. Worker Cathedral said that there is even a place where buried the ashes of local "Don Juan" named Otto Johan Tove and, according to legend, if you stand at this place, you can soon meet her future husband.
