St. Catherine's Passage is the most famous of all Tallinn's narrow laneways. The passage way connects Vene and Müürivahe. The narrow lane has an original medieval charm where you can really imagine Tallinn as an old medieval city.
The laneway maintains several 15th and 16th century residential buildings and trade and craftsman workshops and in some of these buildings you can still witness local artists and craftspeople busy at work. At the end of the passage you can see remains of St. Catherine's church. The walls of the pasage is also lined with stone carvings from the Dominican Monastery.
