Displaying a blend of architectural styles, Church of the Holy Spirit Puhavaimu Kirik houses a famous 17th-century clock, which is one of the most popular historical sites in the city. The angular, gabled facade, and unusual octagonal tower, showcase some of the church's numerous modifications since its construction in the 1200s. As you wander the aisles and naves, admire the wealth of religious artwork, including 15th-century painted panels, depictions of Biblical scenes, and a memorial to British soldiers who fought in the Baltic during World War I. Keep an eye out for the diverse building techniques, such as the Gothic-style windows and vaulted ceilings. Don't forget to visit the iconic clock, which is ornately carved and decorated.

It is worth the small 1.50 Euro entry fee to see the inside of this church from the early 1300s! There is interesting art from many hundreds of years ago, plus the fee helps the maintenance. I was in.... more »
Beautiful woodwork with paintings. If you sit on the Kehrwieder patio next door you can sometimes hear someone playing the organ here and enjoy a free concert. Tickets were 1.50 Euro.
I stopped by, but it didn't look like much and it was 5 euros. It is interesting to me that all of the tour guides made a point of saying that Estonia is an atheist country, but there are all of these churches that they want you to come and pay to see. I love churches, but this was strange to me.
