  • I read a lot before I went to Tallinn. One of the recommendations was to combine the Monastery with Pirita. That's what they did when they left Tallinn. The monastery did not disappoint- shook. With his power. It's a pity that little has been restored. But it's a wonderful, magnetic place.

  • these ruins are a must-see for a visit to Tallinn. Located by the sea these ruins have a grandiose example of The Cysteric art in northern Europe. Its history is moving until the almost total destruction by Russia under the reign of Ivan the Terrible . Related: Indrek Hargla's pirita strangler
