The Alexander Nevsky Russian Orthodox Cathedral is the biggest Russian Orthodox Cathedral in Tallinn. It was build between 1894 and 1900. Estonia was back then a part Russia.

The Cathedral was dedicated to the Prince of Novgorod, Alexander Yaroslavich Nevsky. He led the famous Battle of the Ice at Lake Peipsi in 1242 (which stopped the German crusaders going east).
