  • A small church of the 19TH century which has two towers tower with black metal domes (as well as the central dome) is all topped in cross and sphere gilded pedestal a, which makes them to be pleasing to the eye. Its facade is neoclassical, having four columns with capitals Ionian type on its main facade and gable. The Church looks good, however fails to transcend the ordinary sense and saying with respect to multiple churches of similar characteristics exist. Enjoy Tallinn. LIFE... it's a trip!

  • A fine example of a Russian Orthodox church, beautiful building to behold from the outside and the interior was equally beautiful. 
  • Sensational the interior of the Church, well worth knowing. It is easy to reach on foot from the central square, and you don't pay to enter. We arrived in time to a cult where all women cover their heads in scarves, and a beautiful music completed the charm of the place.
