The Brotherhood of blackheads in Tallinn was founded in the year 1399. The patron of this society was elected St. Mauritius, Ethiopian in origin, the black head which is depicted on the coat of arms and banners organization. The Brotherhood took young unmarried merchants, who could not be under the Charter members of the Guild. In addition, members of the society could become a prikazchiki, as well as goldsmiths and intellectuals who have not had their homes, businesses and wife.

  • After seeing a similar House in Riga (unfortunately, the newly restored), it was interesting to see that in Tallinn. So much so that in Tallinn this House has remained with the 16-th century, when it was bought by the brotherhood of the blackheads and previous owners have gradually rebuilt, having acquired traits of the Dutch Renaissance. I advise you to find a description of the structure and pay attention to all of the interesting elements of the façade and entrance group. I think inside can be accessed only in the composition of the excursions. In the Soviet times the building was used as a public and now claimed by the heirs of the Brotherhood (straight story in Dan Brown's style).
