  • Surrounded by a small park, we liked the Tallinn Cathedral very much-a beautiful building. In the evening, fairy lights adorned the trees at the cathedral and created a very nice atmosphere.

  • It is about the center of the hill of Themepea. I didn't visit it this time, but the inside of the church seems to be able to visit for 2 euros.
