It survived the first wave if Reformation – the cathedral was reformed first in 1561 – but it did not managed to survive the fire that consumed whole town of Toompea in  June 1684. However, the rebuildnig of the cathedral started soon after that, so in the end of the 17th century, the church was completed.

Today the cathedral – known in everyday usage as Dome Church – has baroque spire and most of the interior. Numerous gravestones and nobles’ shield epitaphs tell about rich history of the region.
