Only 1.50 Euros to get in, although this will probably only detain you about half an hour. Biblical scenes painted on wood. A church which is still in use so not to be visited during services.

This church boasts the oldest timepiece in Tallin, a painted clock dating from the 1600's. Very famous. Worth the visit.

We arrived here when there was a service going on, so we were unable to enter. When we passed by later it was closed. This was a shame as I had wanted to see the Bernt Notke altarpiece and the decorated wooden galleries.

Very missable. Nothing much to see. Look more interesting from outside than from inside. The girl at the reception was very friendly and helpful.
