Tallinn, Estonia: Dome Church

Not many churches are used as churches in Estonia, as it isn't a particularly religious place. However, the Dome Church, also known as St. Mary's Cathedral, is an exception.

The site has hosted a church for at least 750 years or so, but has gone through changes as you'd expect. It even survived a big fire in 1684, the only building in the neighborhood to do so.

The Dome Church is the oldest church in Estonia, and doubles as the host of an observation desk. For a few Euros, you can walk up and look around. Concerts are often held there too, and visitors who drop by might be able to hear some organ music.
