This small but strikingly beautiful church was built in the 14th century and much of the interior is original.
On the front of the church is the famous carved and painted clock, the oldest one in Tallinn. Step inside, it will cost you 1 Euro, a bargain, the interior is amazing. There is a beautifully carved pulpit, a magnificent 15th century painted altar and numerous biblical scenes painted around the gallery. A small staircase leads to gallery, where there is an exhibition of stained glass and where excellent views of the church can be had.
To the left of the altar is a small chapel, in which there are memorials to personnel of the British Royal Navy, the most poignant of which is to the crew of Submarine E18. This vessel was lost with all hands in May or June 1916
(nobody knows for sure) off the coast of Estonia. The wreck of the submarine was found in 2009 and shortly afterwards a memorial was placed alongside the existing ones.
This remarkable little church is absolutely splendid and deserves more than a passing glance.
