This is beautiful church and good place for short visits. Go in, buy a special candle and light its fire. Stop for a moment and experience the silence. Before leaving go to little shop inside the church to buy candles, post cards or religious art.

The magnificent Alexander Nevsky Cathedral was my #1 attraction in Tallinn. It was built between 1894 and 1900 under orders of Tsar Alexander III. It is amazing inside and out. No photos are allowed inside because it is a functioning Russian Orthodox church. Notice that...More

You must visit this place, remember that you're not allowed to take photos there, and you have to stay quiet, as there are Orthodox masses there. Great icons.

Came here as part of the "free tour" and came back later on to go inside. It was fantastic to hear about the history of the building and attempted attempts to dismantle it. Well worth a visit.

Really beautiful structure. It gives you Russian feel from outside. On the inside, it is magnificent. This is the most beautiful building in Tallinn.

Tallinn is a fantastic capital city to walk on foot. One of the many churches worth a visit is the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral which is a striking building outside and interesting inside. We were lucky to witness a service during our visit.

We came across this on our walks and marveled at it from the outside. On the inside, it is even more grand. Words simply can't do justice. If you like churches, this is one not to miss. Please don't be the rude tourist with flash...More

An iconic part of the Tallinn skyline and probably best enjoyed from outside. The obligatory begging woman on the steps is a pain.
