JohannKoell, a 16th-century pastor at thechurch, wrote the first book to bepublished in Estonian, a catechism. In acity where German was the language oftrade and authority, the fact that the firstsermons ever preached in Estonian wereheard in this small 14th-century buildingis a matter of national pride. Inside, thealtar triptych of the Descent of the HolyGhost (1483) is another workThe wealth of Lubeck's powerful NorthGerman league is reflected in thebeautifully carved medieval benches inthe Citizen's Chamber. In the cellarsbelow there is an impressive model ofmedieval Tallinn from the days when allits defensive walls still stood. Significantsections of wall still dominate the lowertown today, interspersed with conicalred roofs like something from a fairytale.'Fat Margaret Tower', built to defend theharbour, is open to the public andserves as Estonia's Maritime Museum.The city's 15th-century Great Guildhallalso functions as a museum, in this caseone devoted to Estonian history. TheGreat Guild controlled most aspects oflife in medieval Tallinn. Membership wascommissioned from Berndt Notke, whileoutside the painted clock (1684) is theoldest public timepiece in Tallinn.Above the old town, Tallinn isdominated by its castle and by itsAlexander Nevsky Cathedral, whichcommemorates the 200 years thatEstonia was a part of the RomanovEmpire. Russia's involvement in the citycan also be seen on its eastern outskirtsat Kadriorg Park, a summer residencebuilt for Peter the Great who aquiredEstonia in 1710. Eight years later, Peterbegan building a palace named after hisEstonian wife Catherine (in Estonian,Kadriorg means 'Catherine's Valley').The palace is a glorious example ofNorthern Baroque with an astonishinglyornate Great Hall. The kitchens nowhouse the Mikkel Museum of paintings,porcelain and figurines from Russia andwestern Europe and one of the finestprivate art collections in Estonia.While the palace was being built, Peterstayed in a cottage in the grounds. Aftera state visit by Tsar Alexander I in 1804,the cottage was refurbished and openedas a museum. Today it contains Petrianartefacts including the Tsar's four-posterbed. Kadriorg also houses Tallinn'snewest museum, The Kumu, a strikingstructure south of Peter's cottage.Named European Museum of the Yearin2008. It displays Estonian art inchronological order. The fourth floorcontains an exhibition recording Estonianartists and their long, often difficultrelationship with authority during theSoviet era; the fifth is an ever-changingdisplay of contemporary art drawn fromacross this energetic country.
