Although beautiful and majestic, the inner side will disappoint some visitors. The place is quite dull and seems run down. It perspires authenticity though and hosts a decent museum on the first floor. Do not expect baroque decorations, this is as raw as a cathedral can get. I am still puzzled at why the lady running the shop had a NATO flag on her desk though...

That was WOW effect when I entered Alexander cathedral! I just did not expect such a pale and simple from outside church would be as authospheric and emotional as it eventually was! I realize the interior is partly under reconstruction and probably soon will become regular white-walled church, but now with bricks and wooden beams it really makes some unique aura.

I visited the Cathedral visiting for a music concert. The cathedral is one of the major attractions on Narva and is well worth a visit. The church is a 'working' church and should be judged as a place of worship not a tourist attraction. Facilities are limited (such as toilets) but there is a small gift shop and a visitor area. The Cathedral has an untouched charm, although some of our group were worried by the scaffolding that appeared to be supporting the fragile roof. To my mind, this only adds to the charm and appeal. I didn't spend long studying the church's history but would recommend a visit if you are in Narva.

Here's my daughter was baptized, and then many years later was baptized in her three sons in Alexander's Cathedral in Minsk. I remember this day in the summer 1981. Thank you Holy Alexander for your patronage.
