Niguliste Church (Niguliste kirik) (Tallinn)

Tallinn Niguliste Church

Niguliste Church is one of the oldest churches in the city. It was originally found in the 13th century and dedicated to Saint Nicholas, patron saint of sailors and sea traders. However much of the structure you see today was constructed in the 15th century. During Reformation riots of 1524 the church escaped vandals thanks to quick thinking of its warden. He managed to seal the entrance door by a melted lead. Barbarians tried to break in, but eventually they failed. Today it holds a museum and hosts choral concerts on weekends.
