Dating back to the 13th century, the Church of the Holy Spirit’s deceptively simple exterior tricks you till you see its elaborate interiors. The beautiful alter with statues that juxtapose against the golden embellishments, gorgeous stained-glass windows and the historic Clock of the Church of the Holy Ghost in Tallinn made by Christian Ackermann, are only a few of its many highlights.
The wood work truly takes center stage here with Baroque and Renaissance accents that complete the ethereal church.

Church is quite beautiful inside with wonderful stain glass window with interesting paintings even on along the aisle side of some of the pews. Shortly after entering there was amazing music with 3 musicians singing and playing old instruments including a recorder, drum, lute and hurdigurdis (spelling?) Acoustics were wonderful.
Originally consecrated in the early 13th Century. After the Reformation, the first Estonian sermons, supplanting the German versions, were held here and Johann Koell's Catechism, written by the pastor of the church and published in 1535, is considered the first book in Estonian. The exterior façade has a beautiful clock which has been keeping time here since the 17th Century. The church has a roll of honour, listing the 112 British RN sailors who lost their lives in the Baltic Sea operations 1918~20 which enabled Estonia and Latvia to declare independence from the Bolshevik USSR. Many are buried in Tallinn. CHURCH OPEN FOR TOURISTS Monday to Saturday: 0900 - 1800 Sunday: between services. Entry fee applies.
