VHK chapel in Tallinn

Above you can see the exterior of the main building of the Vanalinna Haridusholleegium (VHK) which is a truly remarkable enterprise, offering education and culture in Tallinn.
Some years ago, the moat around Tallinn was drained - foolishly as it turned out. The resulting effect on the water table meant that the cellars of all the buildings in the older part of Tallinn were flooded with mud. At the VHK, this was eventually cleared to make room for a chapel. Here is the entrance:


The Altar is set up with Ikons (I celebrated a sung Mass here last evening):


Each morning during the Festival, Lauds are sung according to the Cistercian use by a small group of devout early risers.
