Church of the Holy Spirit Puhavaimu Kirik, Tallinn

4.4
Displaying a blend of architectural styles, Church of the Holy Spirit Puhavaimu Kirik houses a famous 17th-century clock, which is one of the most popular historical sites in the city. The angular, gabled facade, and unusual octagonal tower, showcase some of the church's numerous modifications since its construction in the 1200s. As you wander the aisles and naves, admire the wealth of religious artwork, including 15th-century painted panels, depictions of Biblical scenes, and a memorial to British soldiers who fought in the Baltic during World War I. Keep an eye out for the diverse building techniques, such as the Gothic-style windows and vaulted ceilings. Don't forget to visit the iconic clock, which is ornately carved and decorated.

  • The Church of the Holy Ghost is a medieval Lutheran church in the old town district of Tallinn, Estonia. It is a simple 13th-century church featuring a landmark clock & wood-heavy interior with a spiral staircase. Well worth a visit.
  • Very beautiful old church. Many paintings inside. Definitely worth the visit.
