Beautiful both outside and inside the cathedral' s ornate domes stand out from the surroundings and are clearly visible from many viewing points. Indeed, it is hard to miss!!! The interior is also ornate and worthy of a short 10 minute stop on any walk...More

More Beautiful from outside but always under some renovation so difficult to get good pictures. Not very old in age, Light some candles inside and find peace 😀

The cathedral is located opposite the Toompea Castle. It's a small cathedral however the building is imposingly large with dome like structures on the top. The altar is beautifully decorated and the arches are painted magnificently. It's a nice cathedral to visit.

Great orthodox cathedral in a very good shape, still renovating. Russian monument in the center of Tallin.

It was my first time inside such a cathedral and I was very much happy with what I saw. The church is smaller than it looks but it's very beautiful.

Impressive from the outside (and, despite the contrast, well-fitting with its surroundings; trust me, there are some radical misfits in Tallin). Disappointing from the inside, but I learned that with Orthodox churches it is usually one or the other, rarely both. Beggars reaching Notre Dame...More

A very nice example of Russian orthodox cathedral and a good place to start or end your walk throught the medieval town of Tallinn, as it lies next to the centre.

A really spectacular building exterior. Very different than the rest of the architecture in Tallinn. When I visited, there was a huge green covering over part of it with some scaffolding. Its a shame, it ruined the photos. You only need a quick visit inside.

Worthwhile seeing. You probably only need to spend 15-20min in total. Beautiful Orthodox Church. To the kids it was just another church but enjoyed chasing pigeons.

Very impressive building at a prominent point in the Old Town, but 20 minutes would cover any visit along with photos.

Hello, It was not open during the weekdays when we first went but on returning on the Sunday it was open in all of its glory. Do enjoy.
