St Olaf's Church - Review

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, Tallinn Reviews

  • The church itself in nothing special, but the view from the tower is unmissable. The admission was 3 Euro if I remember correctly and worth every cent.

  • Great view from tower. A little bit scary for somebody to go upstairs - not so much place for you and people from up going down - but the view is cool

  • The view of old town is great from the top. Few euros and a lot of climb and you would be on top. Beware: there are no lifts inside, so you have to walk. But the view on top is amazing and worth the climb.

  • The st. Olaf’s church is believed to have been built in the 12th century. From 1944 until 1991, the Soviet KGB used Oleviste's spire as a radio tower and surveillance point. If you want to go to the top you need to pay, and frankly is not worth it.

  • it is one of the place to see Tallin from above. When going down, don't believe the rope since it is very loose. Hold the pole instead.
