    Swedish St. Michael’s Church

    The New Almshouse that was built for the city poor became the church for the Swedish congregation after the Great Northern War. The restored church, which was used as a gymnasium during the Soviet period, has been re-consecrated. The church has a Baroque altar (Joachim Armbrust) and pulpit as well as a unique baptistery (Christian Ackermann, 1680). Thanks to its good acoustics, the Swedish St. Michael’s Church is a popular concert venue. The Museum of Estonian Swedes is also located in the church, which is open to visitors by prior arrangement.

      It is worth a quick look to see the church and its exhibits. It is an example of an Estonian church which is not Russian orthodox. Thirty minutes should be ample.

      Just down the street from the St. Nicholas Church/Nigistle Museum, St. Michael's is a smaller, simpler church, but well worth a visit. Established by the Swedes, with strong ties historically to... Read more comments
