Dome Church (Cathedral of Saint Mary the Virgin)

  Toomkooli 6 ,   Old Town          +372 644 41 40     18 Oct 2021

What might be the oldest church in Estonia was founded in 1219 by the first wave of Danish forces. The Gothic exterior dates to the 14th century, but the interior was rebuilt after the 1684 fire. The Baroque pulpit (1686) and organ loft (1780) are worth a look. As you enter be sure to step on the tomb of Otto Johann Thuve, who asked that his grave be placed in this humbling location. Please be considerate and visit after the Sunday service (starting at 11:00). The tower's viewing platform is open to the public between 10:30 - 16:00/16:30 depending in the season.
