Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, Tallinn

(1,900+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
A symbol of Estonia's former Tsarist rulers, Alexander Nevsky Cathedral 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. By using our Tallinn trip generator, you can arrange your visit to Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and other attractions in Tallinn.

  • Beautiful church inside and out. Every time I walked by I wanted to take another photo. No pictures allowed inside so make sure and go in and have a look.  more »
