Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web
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. Plan your visit to ST. Catherine's Passage and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Tallinn holiday planner.

  • This is a great spot for walking along or having coffee. Lots of shops with interesting things. You can head up to the outer wall if you want a good view over the area. 
  • As a local resident many times during a walk through the old town on the alley of the Holy Katharina. Usually all consider medieval attractions located here. In addition, I recommend that you look into the glass workshop. Namely, during the work of the artist. We were lucky enough to observe the work of masters on weekends during daytime. Particularly patient can become acquainted with the process of creating glass masterpieces from start to finish. There you can buy your dream product.

  • On this street you should walk in the sunny weather, and then when the overcast and even at dusk. Do not go past the House of dolls (right), come in glass shops, cafes. Hike, enjoy!
