    St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral

    The large and richly decorated Russian Orthodox church, designed in a mixed historicist style, was completed on Toompea Hill in 1900, when Estonia was part of the Czarist Empire. The well-maintained cathedral is one of the most monumental examples of Orthodox sacral architecture in Tallinn. Tallinn’s most powerful ensemble of church bells is located in the church towers. It comprises 11 bells, including Tallinn’s largest bell, which weighs 15 tonnes. Carillons by the entire ensemble can be heard before services. The interior, which is decorated with mosaics and icons, is worth a visit.

      Inside is beautiful, and one day I happened upon the actual church service. The singing was so beautiful, they should sell recordings. Very peaceful.

    • A pretty church.

      I liked the church of Olaf more. But this one was good as well. Didn't check inside. It's located near the Kiek in de Kök museum.

    • Nice outside scaffolding & huge tours inside...yikes

      We fortunately didn't waste a lot of time here. The rule applies inside "no shorts, no photography"...people were asked to leave and there were monitors if you even looked like you were going to... Read more comments
