Estonia, The Dance Of Death

CAN TLL Day 1 069Beautiful Stained Glass

 

The church itself has it's own unique history including being bombed by the Soviets in World War II.

CAN TLL Day 1 075Danse Macabre

 

Danse Macabre, “The Dance Of Death” probably Tallinn's most famous medieval painting, at least a part of it, is also found here.

This painting that was the topic of many sermons reminds us that no matter what your status is in life, death unites us all.
