About
The Ukrainian Cultural Centre and Greek Catholic Church is tucked away in Laboratooriumi 22. It was built by the members of the Ukrainian community in Estonia and is a place open to all people regardless their nationality and religion. The Centre is a lively place, hosting Labora workshops and the Tallinn School of Calligraphy. Ring the doorbell to get in - if someone has time, they might show you around. We offer tours and workshops, book in advance to see the whole centre and church, hear all the stories, and even try out some of the crafts done here. Information on labora.ee/workshops. The Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church is open during services (weekdays 9 AM and Sundays 10 AM), from 10-17 during summer, or on special request.

When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This medieval warehouse next to the old city wall acts as the Ukrainian Cultural Center.

The Ukrainian community is the second-biggest ethnic minority in Estonia. There are more than 22,000 Ukrainians living and working here.

On our visit, the center was closed. In summer, it is probably open more often.

The Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church is open during services.

That was so interesting to find a part of Ukraine in Tallinn Old Town. First I was impressed of small Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church there. I saw wonderful icons, I never saw like that before.
Outside, in small garden, you can to find nice handmade souvenirs too!

A beautiful wooden church that started as a medieval warehouse next to the old wall near the East gate. Has lovely wooden icons and sets of traditional painted easter eggs. Fascinating visit.

Once a medieval ware house, the building was destroyed by fire in 1894 and then renovated to house the Ukrainian Cultural Centre in 2000. Free to go in. Displays are both at street level and down in the basement.. During the reno, a relief in the limestone found a medieval imprint of a hand which is now on display

A monastery tucked away between Laboratooriumi (lane/road/walk?) and the Old Tallin Walls. You can pay a tiny fee and walk in. Do not miss the basement with the hand painted plates of animals that are going extinct nestled next to Sanat figurines and wooden eggs.

They also had seed cards for sale that you can write a letter and send to someone, and if they wish, they can plant the paper with the seeds.

The door outside has the smallest opening door to tuck prayers.

All in all, very cool little church and a lovely walk along the wall.

It's not only the church but also the Ukrainian cultural center full of interesting people, stories and amazing workshops, such as papermaking, calligraphy school, Easter eggs painting, wood toy making and many more!
Really a must-visit place in Tallinn !

This proved to be one of the more enjoyable short visits we had in Tallinn: we came across this little church quite by accident , in fact you could easliy walk straight past it as nothing really gives any idication that this is a church. The building seems to form part of the strong town wall system.
Inside is a delight : icons,candle sticks and a magnificent alter piece.
The church is very small - probably no bigger than your average garage at home, although down the wooden ladder into a narrow cave like cellar, and there were many interesting artefacts.
Eight people here would crowd this quiet charming small building - but it is definately worth missing out a gift shop to see it.

This little "monastery" and church is dedicated to "the Virgin with three hands." Quite a story to be told here. Small tour groups are the best way to visit, I believe. Painted eggs, calligraphy, "toys" and psychological props, and paper-making crafts are active in the confines of the workshops.
