Churches & Landmarks, Tallinn County: 25 reviews and 26 photos
The Alexander Nevsky cathedral is a Russian Orthodox cathedral built in 1900. It is a magnificent example of Russian architecture.
When we were there there was a service taking place and the inside the cathedral was thick with incence. It stands high near the Toopea castle.
According to local legends, the structural damage the cathedral has suffered this century results from it's having been built on the grave of the local hero Kalevipoeg. How trur this is we eill never know!!
Address: Near the castle.
Directions: In the city centre
