Description

The Great Guild Hall is one of medieval Tallinn’s most distinguished public buildings. The Hall was commissioned by the Great Guild – the local association of Hanseatic merchants. Over the centuries, a variety of events have taken place in the Great Guild Hall, ranging from grand parties to church services as well as court proceedings. During the 19th Century, the building was known as the Stock Exchange and was used not only for business but also played a role as a lively arts venue. The first motion picture to be shown in Estonia was screened here. Since 1952, the Great Guild Hall has served as the main building of Estonian History Museum. The Hall was built in the late-Gothic style. At its entrace, you can see an impressive portal with oak doors and a large bronze knocker which date back to 1430.

Our postcards are handmade from 100% recycled paper and printed with our letterpress  on both sides.
