Episcopal Castle

Episcopal Castle is a romantic place. Everybody knows the legend about the White Lady who appears in the Dome Church window each August. It is the girl who was buried with in it’s walls.

Haapsalu’s gothic cathedral is located within the castle walls. It is a rather plain and archaic gothic church with one single nave covered by enormous wide vaults without any supporting pillars. This feature makes it special, it is said to be “the largest single-nave church in the Baltics” (superlatives are popular everywhere). Because of its good acoustics the church is often used for concerts and recordings.

Access into the cathedral is from the inner courtyard of the castle through the museum (entrance fee).
