St. Olav" s Church, St. Olav Church, with its huge 159-meter spire, is an excellent landmark for nearby ships and a very effective lightning rod. Throughout the church's history, it has been struck by lightning several times and burned completely three times. But it's too difficult to climb to the top of the tower. It's forty stories high. You can see the whole old city.
Gothic churches in the 13th century were 159 meters high, once the tallest building in the world (1549-1625). They were destroyed by fire. Now they are seen as rebuilt churches, 124 meters high. They are the tallest building in the old city of Tallinn and the landmark of Tallinn. Saint Olaf Church in Tallinn is a church in Tallinn, Estonia.

Around the spiral staircase of human nature, we climbed the 60-meter church roof viewing platform, took a panoramic picture of the old city of Tarim with trembling hands and hearts. Five minutes later, we turned down the original road all the way, feeling that our knees are not our own. Tarim, I really want to say I love you.
Once the highest Church in Nordic, climbing up, you can see the whole city of Tallinn, the Baltic Sea, the red castle, the beautiful old medieval city. Climb up the stairs, winding, there are thick hemp ropes to pull, the stairs are very funny, climb up or be careful. It took twenty minutes to climb up. It's small and windy. You can walk around the top with wire mesh protection. But you're still afraid of being blown down by the wind. You can't take pictures carefully around the top. You're afraid that your mobile phone will fall down. It's okay to lose it and hit people when it falls. It's not like a grenade.
A good place, spiral staircase design when climbing the top of a slightly suspended, the church is the tallest building in the ancient city to the top can be 360 degrees to watch the whole city of Tallinn, and the auditorium is magnificent, admission tickets are not expensive, it is worth entering.
We live right next to this church. It's really high. It used to be 159 meters. The motivation for building such a high spire was to use it as an ocean landmark. It was struck at least eight times by lightning and burned three times. St. Olaf's Church is now 123 meters high, one of the world's tallest churches, so it can't be photographed completely nearby, but it has become one of the beautiful symbols of Tallinn.
The church is on the other side of the entrance, where there are few attractions and restaurants, and there aren't so many people. Because the building is relatively tall, its blue spire can be seen from a distance. But it feels a little old, and a lot of paint has fallen off.
