Very impressive outside, no photos inside. There is a guard that will stop you from raising your camera, although some people with cell phones got pictures.

This is one of those Russian Orthodox churches complete with golden crosses and black onion-shaped domes which are so striking. It was built in the late 19th century during the period of "Russification". Alexander Nevsky was the first Russian saint. Unfortunately no pictures were allowed...More

This onion-domed structure perched atop Toompea Hill is Estonia's main Russian Orthodox cathedral. The church's towers' hold Tallinn's most powerful church bell ensemble consisting of 11 bells including the largest in Tallinn, weighing in at a massive 15 tonnes!!

A beautiful cathedral with a rich history. I don’t know if tours are available, but it would be worthwhile to take one. The view from the small park adjacent to the cathedral is stunning. Definitely worth a visit.

The church is very much like all the other Russian churches around the world. It can get very crowded because all of the tours stop at the church. They are very strict about no pictures. There are always church sanctioned panhandlers bottom of the stairs

Very greatly built cathedral, no matter you view it from far or near. If weather is good, you will definitely get some great shots of it.
