Lovely architecture in the centre of the old town. Wander across to this spot for a bit of Estonian history.

When you're actually standing at it it's hard to see its full beauty. Inside is smaller than it looks like it would be but still worth popping in. Part of Old Town so don't have to go out of the way to see it.

Situated in the administrative area of Toompea this cathedral is sited high above the Old Town but well worth the climb. The easiest approach seems to be from Freedom Square following the city wall up to the main door though the more popular route is...More

You must visit. It is absolutely beautiful. There is a sign asking visitors not to take photos but I noticed a lot of tourists were taking photos with their cell phones and the care takers of the church did not care!

This cathedral welcomes discretely-dressed visitors and gives a fabulous space. Stunning! It is understandable but unfortunate that photography is not allowed. Free entry

You’re not allowed to take photos inside the cathedral so you’ll have to believe me when I sat it’s absolutely stunning!

The Nevsky Cathedral is a apparently still a working cathedral, receiving tourists on weekdays but looks like it still holds mass on Sundays. For architecture affectionados, nicely restored and maintained fired brick facade (instead of sculpted stone), typical of this regions past. The extremely small...More
