Travel Tallinn, Estonia - The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral of Tallinn
Take a tour of Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Tallinn, Estonia -- part of the World's Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral stands apart from the all the other buildings of Tallinn, Estonia.
This church known for its extremely tall domes was built in the Russian Revival style during Russian occupation.
Because of this, some native Estonians see the building as an offensive symbol of oppression.
However, most of the people still admire the beauty of this ornate 100-year-old monument.
The cathedral is dedicated to St. Alexander Nevsky, the famous Grand Prince of medieval Russia.
Although the Soviet Union's non-religious policy mostly left the cathedral abandoned, it has since been restored.
The Alexander Nevsky's tall steeples, sleek domes, and gleaming crosses mark a distinctive place.

Tallinn, Estonia - Alexander Nevsky Cathedral (2018)
The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral (Estonian: Aleksander Nevski katedraal) is an orthodox cathedral in the Tallinn Old Town, Estonia. It was built to a design by Mikhail Preobrazhensky in a typical Russian Revival style between 1894 and 1900, during the period when the country was part of the Russian Empire. The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral is Tallinn's largest and grandest orthodox cupola cathedral. It is dedicated to Saint Alexander Nevsky who in 1242 won the Battle of the Ice on Lake Peipus, in the territorial waters of present-day Estonia. The late Russian patriarch, Alexis II, started his priestly ministry in the church.
The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral crowns the hill of Toompea which is one of several places where according to legend the Estonian folk hero Kalevipoeg's father Kalev is said to have been buried. The cathedral was built during the period of late 19th century Russification and was so disliked by many Estonians as a symbol of oppression that the Estonian authorities scheduled the cathedral for demolition in 1924, but the decision was never implemented due to lack of funds and the building's massive construction. As the USSR was officially non-religious, many churches including this cathedral were left to decline. The church has been meticulously restored since Estonia regained independence from the Soviet Union in 1991.
Tallinn is the capital and largest city of Estonia. It is situated on the northern coast of the country, on the shore of the Gulf of Finland in Harju County. From the 13th century until 1918 (and briefly during the Nazi occupation of Estonia from 1941 to 1944), in languages other than Estonian, the city was known as Reval. Tallinn occupies an area of 159.2 km2 (61.5 sq mi) and has a population of 450,305.
Tallinn, first mentioned in 1219, received city rights in 1248, but the earliest human settlements date back 5,000 years. The initial claim over the land was laid by the Danes in 1219, after a successful raid of Lyndanisse led by Valdemar II of Denmark, followed by a period of alternating Scandinavian and German rule. Due to its strategic location, the city became a major trade hub, especially from the 14th to the 16th century, when it grew in importance as part of the Hanseatic League.
Tallinn's Old Town is one of the best preserved medieval cities in Europe and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Tallinn is the major political, financial, cultural and educational center of Estonia. Often dubbed the Silicon Valley of Europe, it has the highest number of startups per person in Europe and is a birthplace of many international companies, including Skype. The city is to house the headquarters of the European Union's IT agency. Providing to the global cybersecurity it is the home to the NATO Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence. It is ranked as a global city and has been listed among the top 10 digital cities in the world. According to the Global Financial Centres Index Tallinn is the most competitive financial hub in Northern Europe and ranks 42nd internationally. The city was a European Capital of Culture for 2011, along with Turku in Finland.

Tallinn Estonia Town Square Olde Hansa to Upper Town Alexander Nevsky Cathedral
Continued from the previous video, from the Tallinn old town square, we headed in the direction of Olde Hansa, which is a restaurant featuring the medieval way of eating. This was a restaurant recommended by the cruise ship, so we came to take a look, though we decided not to eat here. Just outside the restaurant, there was this lady selling some spiced sweets/nuts, at 4 Euros per packet. She said it had medicinal value! Well, it tasted like sweet stuff to me. We followed the walking directions in the Rick Steve's guide and headed up this smaller and narrow walkway, towards the upper part of the Tallinn. This would bring us to a place called the Danish King's Garden (with plenty of shade) and we took a rest near the flower bed. Then, we headed towards the Orthodox cathedral, called the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, went inside briefly to take a look. And we walked on. To be continued in the next video.

탈린의 고지대로 향하는 길. 중세시대부터 귀족과 성직자들의 거주지였던 이곳엔 주요 성당과 공공기관들이 몰려 있다. 13세기 덴마크 점령기부터 대주교 관저와 중앙 성당의 역할을 했던 톰 성당이 우뚝 솟아 있고, 고지대 광장 중앙에는 19세기 제정 러시아 차르의 권력을 보여주는 알렉산드르 넵스키 성당이 우아한 자태를 드러내고 있다. 화려하게 장식된 성당 내부에선 러시아정교회 미사가 거행되고 있었다. 러시아정교회 전통에 따라 수건을 머리에 두르고 모두 일어서서 미사를 드리는 모습이 이국적이면서도 엄숙하게 느껴진다.
