"Medieval church" Puhavaimu Kirik - Church of the Holy Spirit Tip by nomadig

The church of the Holy Spirit is the only church built on 14th century that has stayed intact from the beginning. Both the interior and the exterior look the same as in medieval times. The exterior has the oldest public clock in Tallinn, and the interior has splendid gothic woodcarvings. Also, the church was the first that had Estonian language masses.

The church is centrally located in the Tallinn old town, only a few dozen steps from Raekoja plats. It is easy to pass by, as there is only a small door leading to the church. Once inside, the dimly lit church has a special atmoshpere, probably also dating back the 14th century. Note that the church is still in use, so please be considerate during your visit.
