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 cathedral is one of the most stunning and pleasing works of architecture I've ever seen in my life. The construction is just so so beautiful! Totally worth visiting. The inside is filled with art. No pictures are allowed.
  • A beautiful cathedral located in old town Tallinn. This orthodox cathedral is a place of worship so no photography is allowed inside and worshippers don't hesitate to tell you off if you don't respect these rules. A must visit if you're in town.
