Overview

A grand and stylish pseudo-gothic brick church (architects Viktor Johann Gottlieb Schroter, Georg Hellat) greets you right next to the site of the first general song festival of Estonia. In the church, you can admire Johann Koler's altar painting 'Inviting Christ' (1897) and enjoy concerts in the hall that has room for up to 3000 people.Interesting facts:- WG Eisenschmidt, one of the first Estonian pastors, was the first pastor of the congregation and he served them for 53 years;- St Peter’s Church has a 19th century organ with 22 registers.

Between 2013 and 2014, the copper sheaths of the spires was replaced (courtesy of a wealthy member of the congregation's legacy). For a brief few months until the copper tarnished, St Peter's roof blazed in the sunlight.
