Aleksander Nevski Katedraali, Tallinn

4.5
A symbol of Estonia's former Tsarist rulers, Aleksander Nevski Katedraali 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.

  • This Orthodox cathedral built during the Tsarist period and it wanted the building to be seen all over Tallinn. Free entry and souvenirs. The famous Russian builder built the church.

  • Russia Orthodox Church near Toempair Castle, which is unique in Tallinn's Old town. There is a light-up at night and it is very beautiful.
