A little church close to Tallinn Harbour.

My experience, Explo description: 

The Püha Siimeoni ja naisprohvet Hanna kirik (Church of St. Simeon and the Prophetess Hanna) was built in 1752-1755 on the initiative of seafarers. At that time, the coastline was much closer to the city, and the church was close to the waterfront: its foundation had to be filled with some soil.

Parts of the church were destroyed during the sovietic era.

My personal recommendations: 

The church is closed most of the time. But it is interesting to notice this little building lost in the middle the Harbour.

How getting there: 

Crossroads between Ahtri and Paadi, close to the ferry platform.
