I found the cloisters while looking for the Catholic Cathedral. Very impressive. This part of town reminded me so much of those gorgeous streets in Italian towns: nit what I expected in Estonia.

To avoid all those touristy middleage atractions, this is genuine. When i visiting. there was nobody inside even though it was summer peak time. So I could feel really solemn atmosphere of the monastery.
