St. Catherine's Passage, Tallinn
(4.4/5 based on 550+ 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.

  • during your walks in Tallinn you'll come back to this charming passage ... must see!
    View original
  • Small and quaint and a little medieval narrow passage difficult to find, tucked away in a typical path on your left the walled city!

  • The old town contains many narrow passes and this is one of them, to go along with the city wall gives a special sense of history
