    Dominican Monastery Claustrum in Tallinn

    Visit the inner chambers of Tallinn's 13th-century Dominican Monastery for a glimpse into the lives of medieval monks. 

    These chambers once included three wings, together called the Claustrum, of which the east wing still remains. It consists of a monks’ dormitory, library, refectory, prior’s living quarters and other rooms. Visitors shouldn’t miss the mysterious 'Energy Pillar' in the cellar, thought to be a source of physical and spiritual health.

      This is petite but beautifully preserved. Accessed via an ancient archway into the courtyard. The steps to the museum are old and uneven.

    • It was OK
