About Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, Tallinn

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

  • Was very beautiful. Very glad I had a chance to see it. The city is also very quaint. Recommend walking around. Went inside and watched a ceremony. Traditional and timeless.

  • Marvelous! A landmark in Tallin, country where religion was so overwhelmed by the communists. I was lucky to watch messes, peaceful as I have never felt before. Estonians ar3 very polite and a moment of reflexion is needed when traveling overseas. Don’t miss it!

  • Extremely beautiful cathedral in a fantastic city. Came during easter ceremonies, which was accessible to tourists, impressive and holy experience with 20 men in full dress singing.

  • The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral is an orthodox cathedral in the Tallinn Old Town, Estonia. It was built to a design by Mikhail Preobrazhensky in a typical Russian Revival style between 1894 and 1900, during the period when the country was part of the Russian Empire. The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral is Tallinn's largest and grandest orthodox cupola cathedral. It is dedicated to Saint Alexander Nevsky who in 1242 won the Battle of the Ice on Lake Peipus, in the territorial waters of present-day Estonia. The late Russian patriarch, Alexis II, started his priestly ministry in the church.

  • A classical orthodox cathedral built between 1894 and 1900. At the beginning during the “russification" period it was disliked by many Estonians and was seen as a symbol of oppression, the Estonian authorities scheduled the cathedral for demolition in 1924, but the decision was never implemented.
