Majestic City Views

The appeal of St. Olaf's Church in Tallinn is not its internal beauty, but rather the stunning views if one treks up to the top of the church tower. There's a modest admission fee to embark on the 258 narrow steps, but the reward is a panoramic visionary experience.

History buffs will like St. Olaf's not only for its age, but its wartime history. Although first mentioned in literature in 1267, it is said to be a few hundred years older than that. It was a KGB radio tower from 1944 to the end of the Cold War. If climbing isn't your thing, it's free to visit the church and have a look around.
