You won't be blamed for imagining you can hear monks chanting as you wander through the corridors of St. Catherine’s Monastery. Established in 1246, this is Tallinn’s oldest intact building.

Nowadays it operates as a museum (pre-arranged tours only). Its beautiful courtyard, which is accessed through the courtyard of the adjacent Peter and Paul Roman Catholic Church, is one of the most captivating spots in all of the Baltics. While here, you’ll see some surrounding stonelined halls where Dominican monks once walked. These ancient passages now display fascinating examples of medieval stonemasonry.

To see the inner rooms, visit the Dominican Monastery Claustrum on Müürivahe street.
