The history of the ruins rising above the banks of the Pirita River date back to 1407, when the largest nunnery in Old Livonia was founded here. The convent that got its name from St. Birgitta that has founded the mother convent in Sweden, survived in its original form until 1577, when the forces of Ivan the Terrible destroyed it. The massive façade, walls, cellars and graveyard has survived until the present. The ruins are a beloved venue for summer concerts.
