We enjoyed Tallinn. It is medieval, well maintained and well geared to the tourist. Lots of winding cobblestone streets, a couple of good churches perched on the highest points, and the usual delightful local wine bars, lunch stops around the square. A good day trip

According to the Oleviste kogudus, "Because of the repairs the church and it's observation deck are closed. Until the end of the year." As a landmark, it can be seen everywhere in the Old Town and serves as a milestone.

St Olaf's church was considered to be one of the tallest buildings once built. There is a viewing spot on the top where you can see the city. Do visit this one.

Quite an interesting church; the main focus though appears to be the panoramic views of Old Town Tallinn you can see from the top; entry to the top was $3€ and you'd better have good walking shoes, etc., as there are lots of steps to...More

Good evening! Free entrance to the church, but entrance to the tower - 2.00 EUR (at least it was in the end of 2015).
