Saint John's church is the main architectural monument in Tartu. Probably the most interesting medieval building in Baltic.

We attended a concert in this church and during listening watched the collection of terra-cotta heads. Not to be missed.

It is a beautiful gothic church with some additions of baroque period but lacking any opulence of the latter. Actually it is very austere and rather bare inside, but maybe this is even for the best, because gothic architecture can be admired at its purest. Main attraction of St. Johns are terracotta figurines, of which now only (!) 200 survived (it is said there were over thousand of them). Entrance to the church is free, one euro is charged for photography.

Very sad to see the dire straights this building has got into including obvious leaning to some of the walls. Glad that restoration work is underway - you get the impression of what has been achieved and what still needs to be done. When we visited the organ was playing in preparation for a concert - which enhanced the experience of visitors.

You are walking in the old city and here between the houses you see this beautiful red brick church. You can climb into the tower, but you need a ticket. You don't see a lot, but we think it's worth it :)
