Pirita Klooster - Review
Dedicate to St. Brigitta, the Convent was built in the 15th century and during its prime, was one of the largest Catholic monasteries in Old Livonia.
Even though the monastery was attacked during the Livonia war by Russian troops, today, the place still stands tall with classic Tallinn architecture in stone construction. Visit the ruins to see a chapter of the city’s history that was short lived. However, the ruins still have a certain charm and is perfect for a walk when in the city.

Pirita Klooster, Tallinn Reviews
Very interesting ruins with a lot to see. Had a great visit for a very cheap entry fee! The best thing: you can explore all by yourself. Without "no entrance" signs everywhere. Great small adventure! Definitely visit the small cave.
It's a mystic place and you can feel it still today. There is only one big map of the archeological site outside the entrance while I would suggest to print maps so the visitors can explore the site with a guide and recognize each room and its usage. No tourist guide available.
Beautiful old ruines of convent. You're back in the middle ages wandering around the premises. Entrance fee reasonable (€ 2,- 2018). Note that it's being restored and thus lots of scaffolding present. Worth a visit though.
Pretty interesting construction. It's maximum 30 minutes of visiting but still worth to check out. The entrance fee is €2 and €1 for students.
The ruins themselves are Nerdville. Marmite for the historically nerdy, but it is a great place to just soak in the atmosphere. The ruins are well tended, to the point of annoyance as most edges are covered with concrete flagstones. The church yard is a beautiful jumble of barely legible epitaphs and plants and shrubs. The convent was named after at Saint Birgitta, which gave the river and the village their name when Pirgitta became Pirita.
