Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, Tallinn

(4.5/5 based on 1,900+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • What a special Cathedral with many gold icons. Very different from the Western cathedrals. During our visit there was a wrong going on with vocals that made the Holy atmosphere complete.
