Tartu St. John’s Church of the Estonian Evangelical Lutheran Church

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating

Tartu St. John’s Church, which was built in the 14th century in the Gothic style, is one of the oldest in Estonia; moreover, it is unique in Europe due to its many original terracotta sculptures. Today, almost 1,000 terracotta sculptures survive, their age reaching nearly 700 years. You are welcome to enjoy the spectacular views of the historical Old Town of Tartu from the viewing platforms of St. John’s Church; you can also visit the arts and crafts shop. Entrance to the church is free of charge for individuals; for groups, the price of admission is €1 per person. We also organise excursions for groups! Access to the viewing platform costs €3 per adult and €2 per pupil, student, and pensioner.
