This cathedral is one piece of fine arts. Very photogenic. Pretty awesome even from inside. A must visit place in upper town.
This building by cathedral standards is modern having been built in the late 19th century, however the architect has managed to give it the splendour of tsarist Russia. The building itself is an imposing sight on the hill in front of the castle. Inside are many mosaics and icons typical of Russian orthodox churches many of which are quite beautiful,... More
Stunning to look at fron the outside or from the inside. If you are lucky be there when the cheanting is taking place and really feel the sound echo around the interior.
Nice spot on one of the hills and easily accessible from old town.

A true Russian Orthodox cathedral full of icons and gold. It stands on Toompea and from there you can see over the town. It is a well-used place of worship so be careful not to get in the way of worshippers.
You know those Russians with their all gold all the time attitude! This place will be crowded whenever you go, but it won't take you more than 5 minutes to get in, take a few instagrams (no filter required) and get out.
My friends and I visited the cathedral last week, it really is beautiful inside and out. It seemed that wherever we were in the Toompea area of Tallinn we could see the cathedral and it was lovely to see it from so many different directions. (Also fabulous opportunities for photos. Make sure you visit, you won't be disappointed.
If you love to look at churches and cathedrals it's definitely worth a visit. Located on the hill it's the perfect spot for this church. It's one of the most beautiful cathedrals I have ever seen. A must-see!
Absolutely gorgeous church. Only wish the scaffolding wasn't on one of the onion domes as it ruined the photos. Otherwise go inside for a view into the past of a Russian Orthodox lifestyle.
