Really nice to peek inside to see how it looks on the inside, I really would have liked to take pictures, but that is not allowed.

You arrive at the steps and walk in to a lovely atmosphere or peace and tranquillity. The icons and decor inside are amazing.

This is a small cathedral and well worth a visit. You can't take any pictures but it has a grand ambience. It has some history with the head of the Russian church - it is on a plaque inside in English. Won't say what it says so you will have to go there and find out. If any church in Tallinn requires a donation then this is the one.

One amazing cathedral, was amazed by the architecture and how friendly people were insider, remember that women need to cover thier hair and men take off your hat. There is also a small shop where you can buy souvenirs that contribute to this beautiful cathedral.

A beautiful building that dominates the skyline and has an equally wonderful interior. It is an active church so sadly you can take pictures of the wonderful interior but worth a visit to light a candle and marvel at the craftsmanship.
