Tallinn's cathedral Feb 01, 2017
An unmissable Russian Orthodox cathedral perched on the top of Toompea and visible from parts of the Lower town, the Alex Nevsky would be an impressive landmark for any city. Open daily between 8am-7pm, it was built between 1894 and 1900 as a place of worship for Tallinn's Orthodox community. As impressive as the domed exterior is, the interior is definitely worth taking a look at. Photography inside the cathedral is not allowed but you are allowed to take a look at the ornate religious art inside for no admission charge. The interior is very atmospheric and you are definitely more likely to hear Russian spoken than Estonian. Sadly, I re-visited the cathedral in the evening and there were people begging outside the doors. I am not sure how common this is, but it was not the only time I encountered people begging on the streets of Tallinn.
