Well worth the work up to this ornate and interesting church - a must see in the old town and is close to another interesting church

Visited just after Orthodox Easter and the Church was beautifully decorated. A beautiful fusion of 19th century architecture and timeless orthodox ornamentation.

Tallinn is very crowded when all the cruise ships come in, and the walk through this section of the medieval town is extremely crowded. But it is well worth it. The cathedral is very picturesque from the inside and out. Well worth the crowds.

We were able to enter just with the start of the service. All the small details and paintings is adorable. Be there in the afternoon as the sun will make the church look amazing.

This Cathedral is easy to find in the Old City and stunning to see up close. Inside you can purchase interesting tokens and postcards. Definitely worth a visit!

This is a stunning place - the murals, the icons, the incense, and the people going about their devotions, make this a fascinating, beautiful and peaceful place to visit. The architecture from the outside is amazing too, and well worth a visit and some photographs

To me it was the best building by a distance in Tallinn. You can stand there and keep admiring it without getting tired.
