What people are saying:

Near Tallinn’s old city wall, also called Maiden’s Tower, you can see three bronze statues of black-clothed headless monks. They have different postures and represent different meanings: the guard on the second floor is called guardian, and the one who stretches out his hands is called giving. , Putting your hands together is called prayer. These statues have no faces, they express people's awe of the unknown.

    Atmospheric little monastery

    Pretty hard to find, hidden in a small courtyard with a small sign pointing to the entrance upstairs. Well worth the trouble and the admission price. The monastery is small, and the lady looking aft...

    A small but wonderfully preserved monastery

    My friend and I visited on 19th May. The lady was keen to explain about the history and was really helpful. Great acoustics when you go downstairs, and sufficient information about the monks who lived...
