Owner description: This onion-domed, Russian Orthodox Church was built in 1900 and named after the Russian hero who defeated the Teutonic Knights in the thirteenth century.

on top of a hill and worth the walk to the top, good views over the city outside the church
pretty outside and inside is very beautiful
there are lots of candles burning and you can light a candle.

The sight is nice and unique. Going inside is free and you can see its beauty inside. Take a "hop on hop off" bus in going to the cathedral or by walking in the old town you can see the passage way going up to the cathedral. Must see sight in Tallinn.

This stunning orthodox church sitting atop the old city of Tallinn is a must see. Typical orthodox styling and interior, nevertheless still quite a sight. Photos are not permitted inside and a gold coin donation will help with ongoing restoration.

The grand onion domes can be seen from afar and comprise a fine preface for the beauty on arrival on the hill.

A beautiful richly featured facade is to be seen, all the more spectacularly gleaming against the clear blue sky.

Inside is a marvellous space, exquisitely decorated for the glory of God. The Iconostases are wonderful and highly embellished with icons and gilt.
