Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, Tallinn, Estonia


What can you expect:

The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral is an beatiful 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.

Built in 1900, during the period when the country was part of the Russian Empire. The cathedral was originally intended as a symbol of the empire’s dominance – both religious and political – over this increasingly unruly Baltic territory.

The cathedral is richly decorated and has eleven bells cast in Saint Petersburg, the largest of which weighs about 16 tons, more than the other ten combined.
