Create an itinerary including Aleksander Nevski Katedraali
A symbol of Estonia's former Tsarist rulers, Aleksander Nevski Katedraali survived demolition and the state atheism of the Soviet Union and has since been restored to its turn-of-the-century glory. Visit the cathedral, finished in 1900, and seek out multiple cupolas built in classical onion-dome style. You can enter and explore the church's interior, complete with a series of mosaics, heavily decorated icons, stained-glass windows, and domed ceilings. Be sure to listen for the 11 huge bells hung in the cathedral towers, which you can hear ringing throughout much of Tallinn during the day.

  • Impressive building, interior is as usual in such places, dark and oppressive. Still worth a quick look for the architecture.

  • Beautiful basilica, next to the parliament and Kiek in der Kok. I understand that it is a church, but its a pity you can't take pictures even without flash.
