The church stands on the top of the famous Toompea limestone hill which was the main point of Tallinn in the past. It also stands in the same place where the statue of Martin Luther once stood.

St Olafs ChurchSt. Olaf‘s (Olav’s) church is one of the most famous buildings in Tallinn built in gothic style most likely in the 12th century yet the earliest data comes only from 1267. It is said that this building was dedicated to the Norwegian king Olaf II who was canonized and called the protector of seafarers.
