"St. Nicholas' Orthodox Church" Niguliste Museum - St Nicholas Church Tip by call_me_rhia


The Church of St Nicholas is Tallinn?s orthodox church and was built in 1827 by the architect Luigi Rusca where once (in the Middle ages) stood a church for Orthodox merchants. It?s not a stunning-looking church but it is one of great important nonetheless: first of all because it was the first classical church building to be constructed in Tallinn, and secondarily because of its fine iconostasis. It?s the oldest iconostasis in Estonia. It was commissioned by the Tsarevitches Ivan and Peter and was consecrated by the Russian Tsarina Sophia Alekseyevna in 1678.

The church is open Mon-Fri 10-16 and Sun 10-15
