Padise Monastery

Padise Monastery

NB: Padise Monastery is undergoing renovation and will re-open its doors in 2019. Padise Monastery was built by the Cistercians in the 14th century. In total, it was built over a period of 200 years. Wars left the monastery in ruins, but restoration work begun in the 1930s. Today, the only medieval interior features of the monastery that have remained intact are its 14th century church bell (the oldest in Estonia) which can be found in Harju-Risti church and the rare Calvary group from the same century which is on display at St. Nicholas’ church. Interesting to know: the church hall of the medieval Padise Monastery is, thanks to good acoustics and a special aura, an appreciated concert venue. National Register of Cultural Monuments.
