Alexander Nevsky Cathedral
Lossi plats 10, 10130 Tallinn, Estonia
Alexander Nevsky CathedralCrowning the hill of Toompea, Alexander Nevsky Cathedral is one Tallinn’s grandest Orthodox cathedrals. The domed church was completed in 1900 in the Russian Revival style but almost faced demolition later when it was considered a symbol of Russian oppression. The cathedral fell into decline during the Soviet occupation but its glittering turn-of-the-century interiors were brought back to their original state after the restoration of Estonia’s independence in 1991.
