Alexander Nevsky Cathedral - Review
Built in the late 19th century in a typical Russian Revival style of architecture, the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral’s onion shaped domes catch your attention straight away. The cathedral is placed on a mount where Kalev is believed to be buried and where Linda mourned for him.
The main alter with golden embellishments, mosaic elements that are seen throughout the Cathedral, stained-glass windows, and the 11 bells that are elaborately decorated- all spin magic and is one of the most splendid sights in the city for architecture and art lovers.

Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, Tallinn Reviews
Beautiful Russian orthodox church build between 1894 and 1900. It's on the hills of Tompea which is located in the famous old town of Tallinn. Beautifully restored when Estonia became independent in 1991. The church is still in use. You can visit the interior but note that photography is not allowed. They have special equipment to have people in a wheelchair also visit the church. Just ask the staff onsite.
Church is magnificent. A bit far away from old town and port if you are coming through the sea way.
The church is beautiful but a a little away from the church, we found another beautiful spot from where the entire old town was visible, and it was very picturesque. Also the sunset added dimension to photos.
Beautiful cathedral, extremely busy with lots of tourists coming in and out. A small shop located inside for souvenirs. Everything is in walking distance in Tallinn so very close to Kiek de kok and toompea hill is right out the front.
Being renovated as of right now, but still an amazing building to look at!
