    St. Olav’s Church and viewing platform

    The gothic steeple of this church, which was completed in the early 16th century, previously made the church one of the tallest buildings in the world (soaring to 159 metres tall according to some sources). Historians disagree, however, on the details and interpretation of the measurements, and some even think that the steeple has never been higher than 115–125 metres. Nevertheless, the church has always been a grand structure, and its 124-metre tower is considered one of the symbols of Tallinn. There are 232 steps leading up to the observation platform!
