    Church of the Transfiguration of Our Lord in Tallinn

    This Orthodox Church of Estonia was built in the 13th century. It is a  mediaeval Cistercian St. Michael’s Abbey for nuns that was rebuilt as the Transfiguration Church in 1732. Its beautiful Baroque iconostasis (1720) is over 290 years old; it is one of the most grandiose Baroque works of art in Estonia and also one of the oldest extant iconostases. The grave monument of the holy martyr Bishop St. Platon in the church and his memorial in the church yard, as well as the oldest church bell in Tallinn add to the character of this church.

      Tallinn is not very big, but we did have to hunt a bit to find this church. It seems closed to the public, at least at non-church times, so you just have to take it in from the outside.

      タリン旧市街の北西側、「修道女の塔」の近くにあるクリームイエローの「キリスト変容教会」。 城壁沿いをぐるりと散策してい途中に訪問してきました。 かつての聖ミカエル修道院の教会だそうです。 祭壇がとても立派で見ごたえがありました。
