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.

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.
