Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, Tallinn
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
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.

Very nice church and together with a building in front of it makes one beautiful unit with a square in the middle.
Its an orthodox cathedral. It's literally the same as 90% of all the other orthodox cathedrals. I've seen so many over the years that it takes a little more than that to make it impressive. That said I'm sure most people will like it.
Beautiful, best admired late or early in the day.
Great church, lot of gold and bling
One of the best orthodox cathedrals in Europe.
