The church and it's dome can be seen from most places around Tallinn Old Town and when you leave and enter modern Tallinn. Interior of the church being renovated at time of visit. Still spelling bound by paintings and religious artefacts.

Not only is this cathedral impressive from the outside, but the inside is full of detail and gold. Must on a visit here.

Worth a visit for the architecture. They are quite strict on taking photos, but if you're sneaky with a mobile phone you might get away with some cracking shots.

Great views, quite steep & small steps but the views are excellent. Once you've paid the €5 you can then take photos inside the church, staff very friendly & helpful

While in Tallinn we visited the Old Town. We stopped at the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, an orthodox cathedral, located at the Upper Town known as Toompea, a few blocks from the Town Hall Square. The structure is amazing and you definitely don’t want to pass by. Frankly, the outside of the building was very impressive and the walk around was... More

A must-see in Tallinn. Both the exterior and the interior are marvelous! It's situated on a hill, so it's a nice place to start exploring the old town.

The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, in my opinion is the most stunning, of many beautiful churches, in all of Tallinn. It is a magnificent Russian Orthodox church with its identifiable "onion" domes. I will say that while the inside of the church is beautiful, there isn't much to see. I suggest getting great views and photographs of this church from the... More

It's a very beautiful church in the russian-orthodox style. The entry is free. Also inside it's an amazing building, everything is designed to the smallest detail.
