St. Nicholas' Church

St. Nicholas' Church is a fortified church, once a wooden church which was one of the oldest of its kind in Estonia, built shortly after the Danish conquest of Lindanis (Tallinn) around 1230. The stone church was completed by 1370 at the latest. Only the walls of the original church have survived. The present appearance of the church owes much to the extensive reconstructions carried out between 1856 and 1858.
