Churches & Landmarks, Tallinn County: 25 reviews and 26 photos
Can you believe St. Olav’S Church was the tallest church in Medieval Europe at one time?. Yet very little is actually known about the building of this Gothic style church and its early years other than it was named after the Norwegian king Olav II Haraldsson.
Theory has it that the motivation for building such a tall steeple must have been to use it as a maritime lighthouse which would be visible from far out at sea.
