The House of Blackheads is one of the most stunning pieces of built heritage in Tallinn’s Old Town. In medieval times it housed Tallinn´s wealthiest merchant and artisan guilds, the Brotherhood of Blackheads and St Olaf’s Guild. It has through all the centuries been fashionable and contemporary (despite different rulers/owners). The most spectacular rooms in the building are the White Hall (1532), which was the first renaissance-style hall in Tallinn, and the two-naved gothic St. Olaf´s Hall (1422). There is no other Renaissance building in Tallinn preserved so well to our days. The House of the Blackheads now mainly serves as a stylish venue for receptions, concerts and other formal events.
