The Oleviste Church was founded in the 12th century and dedicated to King Olaf II of Norway. Even though rebuilt in the 14th century, the church’s history is traced in documents to the 13th century. The building is quiet famous for being struck by lightening 10 times in its lifetime- a controversial but popular fact.
Today, the church’s silhouette adorns the skyline of Tallinn and its tower that stands tall at a height of around 125 meters, offers a breathtaking view of the city.

St Olaf's Church Reviews & Ratings
A must see in Tallinn. It's a simple building anchored by its towering spire which would've made folks in the 13th century look up in awe. It's not a thin spire but a substantial bell tower with heft to it. Love the primarily white walls which focuses the worshipper towards the altar. The church's floor is wooden and creaks as you walk through it which adds a nice feel to it. Free to enter.
A very old and dignified church. Well preserved and interesting content.
St. Olaf church is a must see place in beautiful city of Tallinn in Estonia. You can climb to top of the tower and you have beautiful view of the city. There is not much safety when you climb on top.you have to be bit careful. But a nice place a beautiful view from the top.
Beautiful church. It was such a shame that the church was closed for renovations/construction. I would have loved to go up the tower and see the sights.
A beautiful old town with good little bars, pubs, restaurants.
