  Niguliste Museum-Concert Hall
by Michael_D

St. Nicholas's Museum-Concert Hall has three of the four most important Medieval works of art in Estonia in all of on display.

Thru the centuries the building was renovationed a number of times and now includes things like the late Gothic St. Anthony’s chapel and the Renaissance foyer.

St. Nicholas was the only church in Tallinn’s downtown which remained untouched by the destruction of icons by the Lutheran Reformation in 1523. History has it that a member of the congregation poured molten lead into the locks of the church so the raging hordes could not get in and destry anything.
