A visit to the St. Jacob’s Church in Viimsi
St. Jacob’s Church is the only post-war Lutheran church in Estonia. Its architecture is highly original and it is also used as a gallery and concert hall. The initiator and patron of the construction of the church was President Lennart Meri. St. Jacob’s Church was built in memory of those lost at sea, and there is also a memorial stone to those who perished on 'Estonia' in front of the church.

A visit to the Museum of Coastal Folk
President Meri and his works 'Silverwhite' and 'Silverwhiter' are the subjects of the exhibition 'The Silverwhitest. The Heyday of Rävala", which is currently on display. The exhibition shows the economic heyday of the Fenno-Baltic people through archaeological findings from the 11th and 12th centuries.

Museum of Coastal Folk

Nurme tee 3, Pringi, Viimsi Parish, Estonia | Show on map
The Museum of Coastal Folk is situated in the ancient seaside village of Pringi in Viimsi, just a 30-minute drive from central Tallinn. Here, in a cosy old schoolhouse, the museum has found a home for itself, a place to demonstrate the harmony of land, sea and man meeting, a place to preserve the beauty of simplicity.
