La cathédrale Alexandre-Nevski est la cathédrale orthodoxe de Tallinn. Elle dépend de l'Église orthodoxe estonienne. Elle a été construite entre 1895 et 1900 dans le cadre de la politique de russification forcée de l'Estonie initiée par Alexandre III. Elle est l'œuvre de l'architecte Mikhaïl Préobrajenski.

Was very beautiful. Very glad I had a chance to see it. The city is also very quaint. Recommend walking around. Went inside and watched a ceremony. Traditional and timeless.

The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral is an orthodox cathedral in the Tallinn Old Town, Estonia. It was built to a design by Mikhail Preobrazhensky in a typical Russian Revival style between 1894 and 1900, during the period when the country was part of the Russian Empire. The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral is Tallinn's largest and grandest orthodox cupola cathedral. It is dedicated to Saint Alexander Nevsky who in 1242 won the Battle of the Ice on Lake Peipus, in the territorial waters of present-day Estonia. The late Russian patriarch, Alexis II, started his priestly ministry in the church.

The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral crowns the hill of Toompea which is one of several places where according to legend the Estonian folk hero Kalevipoeg's father Kalev is said to have been buried. The cathedral was built during the period of late 19th century Russification and was so disliked by many Estonians as a symbol of oppression that the Estonian authorities scheduled the cathedral for demolition in 1924, but the decision was never implemented due to lack of funds and the building's massive construction. As the USSR was officially non-religious, many churches including this cathedral were left to decline. The church has been meticulously restored since Estonia regained independence from the Soviet Union in 1991.

Nice architecture. Even more beautiful in the night.

1928 was a plan to pull down the Orthodox Cathedral of Tallinn but a better idea will be to rename this church as a Greek Catholic Church of Tallinn because actually Russian Orthodoxies doesn't exist because all the Orthodox are Greek Orthodoxies

A classical orthodox cathedral built between 1894 and 1900. At the beginning during the “russification" period it was disliked by many Estonians and was seen as a symbol of oppression, the Estonian authorities scheduled the cathedral for demolition in 1924, but the decision was never implemented.

Marvelous! A landmark in Tallin, country where religion was so overwhelmed by the communists. I was lucky to watch messes, peaceful as I have never felt before. Estonians ar3 very polite and a moment of reflexion is needed when traveling overseas. Don’t miss it!

Extremely beautiful cathedral in a fantastic city. Came during easter ceremonies, which was accessible to tourists, impressive and holy experience with 20 men in full dress singing.

Beautiful Russian orthodox church, interrior decorated in very somber and simle way, without the excessive use of gold and silver like in many Russian churches. Breathtaking icons.

Looks very strange here. Nice, but so much russian and doesn’t suit to overall style

Church is magnificent. A bit far away from old town and port if you are coming through the sea way.

The church is beautiful but a a little away from the church, we found another beautiful spot from where the entire old town was visible, and it was very picturesque. Also the sunset added dimension to photos.
