St. Nicholas Church
Niguliste 3, 10146 Tallinn, Estonia
St. Nicholas ChurchBegun in the mid-13th century, St. Nicholas Church has survived centuries of renovations, iconoclastic attacks, bombings, fires and restorations. Its current appearance dates from the 15th century, with alterations to the tower done in the 17th century. Almost destroyed by Russian bombing in WWII, the church was reborn as a medieval art museum and concert hall. Several notable Gothic and early Northern Renaissance works are on display, including the fascinatingly macabre Dance of Death by Bernt Notke.
