I would highly recommended tower of this Church. It cost just 2€ and you have to climb 258 steps, there is no elevator, but it is definitely worth it. Already the way up is very interesting. Twisted narrow staircase, sometimes suddenly leads somewhere else ... and then you finally climb up onto the roof, be rewarded with stunning views of the old town and harbor.

I guess everyone can get this information from the tourist guide but just in case... Oleviste Kirik - St.Olaf's Church was hightest building in Europe for several hundreds. Of course nowadays modern skyscrapers won over it but still it looks very inpressive. It was built in the 13th century and til now this 124-meter giant is considered to be one of Tallinn symbols.

But the best part about this place is that there is a sightseeing area. From april to October everyone may go up the spiral stairs to the height of 60 meters (not the easiest part) and enjoy one of the most beautiful views in Tallinn. Everything can be seen from there, the old part and the port, some modern buildings and churches. It is a very good experience and if you are not afraid of height...

The price is around 2 euros for the entrance to the tower.
