Hg2 : The Hedonist

Niguliste Church Museum

This sturdy 13th-century church was built to withstand military attack – making it the only fortified holy spot in town, still full of hiding places and secret exits. Standing proudly below the approach to Toompea Hill, Niguliste has the second highest spire in the Old Town, and is today an interesting museum as well as a popular concert venue.

rnHave a look at the splendid silver pendants and coats of arms in the treasury – for once not the preserve of archbishops and lords but commissioned in times gone by for the tailors, potters, hatters and the other tradesman who made Tallinn great.

rnIn the crypt-side chapel lurks a striking and malicious Dance of Death painting by Bernt Notke – including a large song addressed to the bad king, the bad emperor, and the bad pope – all of them viewed here getting their just deserts.
