Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church

Add to Favourites Your favourite!

This Old Town church makes its home in a curious medieval building, complete with crooked façade and improbably tiny windows. 

Find it on a narrow lane that follows the Old Town wall.

Though the Ukrainian congregation has been active in Tallinn since the 17th century, the church is a newcomer to Old Town. The congregation acquired the building a few years back, and thorough renovations have made it a pleasant place to worship – one that seems historic and modern at the same time. Be sure to go inside to explore the amazing interior and the iconostasis by Pyotr Gumenyuk.

The church was dedicated to the Three-handed Mother of God, under whose patronage are all the unjustly punished. A modelled clay hand, found during church renovation, is displayed on the wall next to the main entrance. Anyone unjustly punished, or in love, can write their problems down on a slip of paper and drop the note through a hatch at the front of the church in the hope that the Mother of God will intervene on their behalf. 

The church also acts as a cultural centre for Tallinn's Ukrainian community. A small museum of Ukrainian religious art and handicrafts operates here.

Once a medieval ware house, the building was destroyed by fire in 1894 and then renovated to house the Ukrainian Cultural Centre in 2000. Free to go in. Displays are both at street level and down in... Read more
