"House of Brotherhood of Blackheads" Blackheads Tip by Inguuna
Blackheads, Tallinn: 17 reviews and 38 photos
This building is almost the one from Renaissance style architecture in Tallinn. The brotherhood of blackheads united together young and single merchants later to be accepted to the Great Guild. Also here gathered the foreign merchants who weren?t staying in Tallinn for long time.
The name of the organization closely connected with its patron Saint Mauritius, whose head also is on coat of arms. The Brotherhood was active in Latvia and Estonia.
The building is renovated more times, but has saved it beautiful fašade during many years. It?s worth to see its doors.
We also here in Riga have House of Blackheads.
Address: Pikk 17
