    Walking in Tallinn, turn with Viru str. Vene Street and walk 200 meters. Zaidite in St. Nicholas ' Church its history it begins with the year 1030. According to legend here has the gift of Boris Godunov-vintage candlestick. Very valuable iconostasis. And, if you can, come to Sunday mass, listen to the choir. Here, the soul calms down, and thoughts are cleared.

    Small, charming Orthodox Church in the old town. Not as pompous as the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, but very homey.
