St. Catherine's Passage, Tallinn

4.4
Wander under stone archways surrounded by medieval shops on St. Catherine's Passage. Thought to date back to the 14th century, the street connects ruins of a centuries-old church to the old town's Vene Street. Step into the secluded world via a small gateway on Vene Street and stroll the cobbled walkways lined with tombstones. Stop by craft shops in many of the medieval houses and watch demonstrations of glass blowing and the like. Look out for the timeline of Estonia's history, which is laid into the ground along the way. Put St. Catherine's Passage into our Tallinn itinerary planning site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Tallinn.

  • Lovely lane on the edge of the city, but strictly in the winter here is pretty deserted and sadly. Almost everything was closed, will try to return in the summer.
