It's not the most beautiful church I've ever seen but it's very nice inside. The atmosphere of tranquility in this place was something I loved.

The Nevski cathedral is a beautiful Orthodox Church. Entrance is free of charge and will provide you with a view at the interior and the iconostasis. If your in old town, it's definitely worth a few minutes and a quick look.

Located west of Tallinn Old City, this structure is one of the main attraction in this city. Next to other attractions & the sea view.
