Russian style cathedral, which I find stunning. A beautoful example... Finished around 1900 with some huge bells in it.... one weights 11 tonnes. In toomoea hull near the castle. Just stunning. Make the effort to walk up to see it.

The church is built in a Russian Revival style in late 19th century. It is well worth a stop and is still a working Cathedral. The inside is pretty, but no picture taking is allowed.

Quite a tourist attraction but well worth a visit. Huge building but doesn't reflect that inside, almost the tardis in reverse. Really enjoyed the ambience despite all the tourists.

Didn’t go inside the cathedral due to time constraints. But from outside, it’s look grand n special not look like other cathedral.

A lovely Russian Orthodox church with gorgeous interior decor. Unfortunately, you are not allowed to take photos inside, but there are postcards for sale to remind you of what you have seen.

This Cathedral is without a doubt one of the most (if not the most) remarkable buildings in Estonia. The external architecture is definitely better that the internal. Unmissable

Still active Russian Orthodox Cathedral built in the style of a 17th century Moscow church. Russian icons are displayed inside and I am a fan of the architecture.

The church is a good example of a Russian Orthodox architecture. Very ornate inside. No inside photos allowed. They do police those taking photos and will require you to delete them on the spot.
