Very nice cathedral in the hillside of the old city. It gives you a feeling of beeing in Russia without actually beeing there. The cathedral is even nicer inside, but no photo allowed, but alot of people did not respect that. No fee to enter.

Opposite the Toompea castle, this is a beautiful building inside and out. We were lucky to be there on a Sunday and to enjoy the bells as well as see an orthodox church service. Not allowed to take photos inside.

Only a bit over a century old, it's a lovely church, but misses that ancient edifice feel. A visit is 10 minutes, tops.

The exterior of the cathedral is pretty, but the inside was a little bit boring and it was quite small. You're also not allowed to take any photos.

The Russian church in Tallinn at the top of the hill. Full of glitter and ornate grandeur. Very very crowded but then there were four cruise ships in dock! Worth a visit but nothing to linger over.
