It's free to look inside the cathedral, and of course to take photographs outside. You are not allowed to take photos inside, and as other reviews mention, there are people in there making sure you don't. It's worth a look in, but don't expect to...More

Beautiful cathedral, it’s a must see if you are in Tallinn! It’s pristine architecture is fitting given that the area is a protected Heritage site by UNESCO

A beautiful cathedral located in old town Tallinn. This orthodox cathedral is a place of worship so no photography is allowed inside and worshippers don't hesitate to tell you off if you don't respect these rules. A must visit if you're in town.

You will see locals praying. No photos are allowed. Remain silent once you are inside. There is a security guard making sure tourists don't take photos.

The cathedral looks exactly the way one would expect a Russian Orthodox cathedral to look. It was built while Estonia was part of the Russian Empire, and its location dominating the city and its size are essentially political statements. Well worth seeing, inside and out.

This is a beautiful cathedral in the typical Russian Revival style. It was completed at the turn of the 20th century (1900). Stands above the city in the upper part of old town. Enjoyed it as part of a walking tour.

This cathedral was part of our Old Town walking tour & was our first stop. The cathedral is just beautiful & well worth a visit despite being crowded.

When you have visited enough cities and churchies, they are more or less similar. This is beautiful, of course, medium in size but very pretty.

The Aleksander Nevski Cathedral is arguably the most recognised building in Tallinn, with its onion-domes standing proud above the city in the upper old town. It was built in the late 1890s when Tallinn was part of the Russian empire. The inside of the church...More

An impressive example of Russian Orthodox sacred buildings. Richly decorated, one should be aware of why the Orthodox Church functions in this way. A certain warmth surrounds you in spite of the cool weather (constant rain in October), thanks to the candles and perhaps also...More
