The large and richly decorated Russian Orthodox church, designed in a mixed historicist style, was completed on Toompea Hill in 1900, when Estonia was part of the Czarist Empire.
The well-maintained cathedral is one of the most monumental examples of Orthodox sacral architecture in Tallinn. Tallinn’s most powerful ensemble of church bells is located in the church towers. It comprises 11 bells, including Tallinn’s largest bell, which weighs 15 tonnes. Carillons by the entire ensemble can be heard before services. The interior, which is decorated with mosaics and icons, is worth a visit.
Visited the church on a Sunday, could not go in as there were services going on and walk around the church. Quite a beautiful church and well worth a visit.
Most opulent Orthodox church in Tallinn. Cathedral is often shown as the 'face' of Tallinn even though there are much more historic and culturally significant buildings in the old town of Tallinn...
like all russian orthodox church inside the structure is the same, outside you can take a lot of pictures and definitly worth it.
