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.

  • The passage itself, no big deal. But you, certainly, will be around at some point and must visit her.
