  Tallinn orthodox cathedral on Toompea hill
by nomadig

The cathedral of Alexander Nevsky sits on a formidable hill in Toompea, in the Tallinn old town. Built by Russian in year 1900 when the Russian empire actively increased Russian influences on its outer edges. The cathedral is impressive both inside and outside. If you have not yet visited an Orthodox cathedral, I suggest you go here -- the grandeur of the inside is something that you need to experience yourself.

The church is still in active use, so do follow their regulations posted on the doors -- that's why I do not have a photo of the interiors -- no photos, no loud talking and so forth. Wear enough clothes and remember to take your hat off.
