Editor's review

Known as both the Dome Church and St. Marys in English, Toomkirik was founded on Toompea Hill by the Danes way back in the 13th Century, and is said to be Estonia's oldest church. Apart from that claim to fame, the still-functioning Toomkirik is also renowned for being the only building to survive a 17th Century fire that ravaged the rest of Toompea. Blessed indeed! There's a number of good reasons for popping your head in, including over a hundred medieval coats of arms, an impressive baroque pulpit and the tombstones of many Tallinn greats. On your way in step on the grave of one Otto Johann Thuve. It was his dying wish to be knelt on by the faithful forevermore, to atone for his licentious playboy lifestyle.
