A really busy and bustling lane, full of tourists, street sellers, stalls and restaurants. Really worth walking down, lots to see and very interesting.

This feels like a secretive escape from the bustle of the town. The church is well worth a visit, leading into the Dominican monastery. I was fortunate in being there when there was an evening concert with mediaeval music. Also, nearby is a small courtyard with an entrance up a flight of stairs to a ruined monastery. The guardian will be glad to see you and there is a reduced entrance fee if you are old/a student.

The most picturesque of Old Town's lanes. It is home to the St.Catherine's Guild, a collection of craft workshops where artists use traditional methods to create and sell glassware, hats, quilts, ceramics, jewelry, hand painted silk and other wares. Visitors can watch the artists at work, be it glass blowing, weaving or pottery making.

This laneway is half hidden, connecting Vene and Müürivahe streets and shows the best of the back streets of Tallinn, it runs next to what was St. Catherine's Church.
Located here is St. Catherine's Guild, a collection of craft workshops where artists use traditional methods to create and sell glassware, hats, quilts, ceramics, jewellery, hand-painted silk and other wares.
The old gravestones also have been preserved on some of the walls

St. Catherine's passage is narrow and filled with tour groups, but an area that should not be missed. You can see gravestones from the medieval period mounted on one of the walls. There are small cafes as well as local craft stores selling felted hats, wooden spoons, candles, etc.
