Mihkli Kirik (the estonian name) has always been one of the main attractions of the town of Jõhvi.
After the restoration the facade looks better than ever.

St. Michael church is one of few churches of this tipe in Estonia. It is a church-stronghold, it has massive walls. During wars in mid ages the church played defensive role for people. St. Michael church has a big stone tower. Especially nice view on the church you can see from the viaduct (automobile bridge).
Underground of church houses a museum.
