Tallinn, Estonia: St. Nicholas Church

Just because something looks like a church, and it's named like a church, doesn't mean it is a church.

Say hello, then, to St. Nicholas Church in Tallinn, which actually hosts part of the Art Museum of Estonia.

This was a church around 1250, although it received some freshening over the years. The big tower arrived in the late 1600s. The building's most difficult days came in 1944, when it was bombed by the Soviets during World War II. This was the only building in that area that was rebuild to the old specifications.

The building survived another fire in the 1980s, and now hosts concerts,
