Known for its intricate iconostasis, St. Nicholas' Orthodox Church houses 16th-century paintings and vibrant decor. Built in 1827, this Classicist-style church consists of two bell towers and a large copper dome. The white and orange outer facade emerges from a narrow cobblestone street. Step inside to view artistic objects and lavish decor. Light plays off many surfaces inside the main dome, which is lined with colorful glass and rich ornaments. You can get souvenirs and religious literature inside the church. Make St. Nicholas' Orthodox Church a part of your Tallinn vacation plans using our Tallinn trip itinerary maker app.

  • Definitely a practicing church so be respectful. Lots of gold work inside, no charge for this one just a donation if you choose. Fairly small inside

  • Really beautiful and peaceful Church but no-one really welcomed us in. But no charge for visiting- request for donations- which I prefer.
