St. Bridget's Convent, Tallinn

(190+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Tourist Spot
Located close to the scenic shore of the Pirita River, St. Bridget's Convent was built in the 15th century as a home for both monks and nuns. Now in ruins, the monumental convent was once among the largest religious structures in this part of the world. Much of its architecture still remains, and it displays a combination of Gothic grandeur and the ascetic values of its former inhabitants. The site is open throughout the year and the convent is rarely crowded, so it's likely you'll have the opportunity to see it totally undisturbed. With our international travel planner, Tallinn attractions like St. Bridget's Convent can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Spent 3 days. If You fancy clubbing, haste, loud stupidities, if You must booze at bar downstairs- avoid this place. If You like all the opposite- come stay with welcoming and all-smiles Sisters. Especially if You don't mind 400 yrs old ruins of a huge church viewed from window. Awesome. Hope to be back.
