This is a magnificent building, however I was slightly disappointed with the interior, I was expecting it to be very grand and it wasn't. From the outside the building is spectacular.

Architecturally stunning from the outside. Very beautiful old Orthodox Church. You can go inside and have a look but only in a small section. You can’t roam free. It’s very beautiful and you can buy a candle to light.

This is one of the churches you come by while strolling around the streets of Old town. It has a copper dome and twin bell towers. There is no entry fee and photographs are not allowed.

Once you visited Riga and visited the Russian Orthodox Church in the park, there is no comparison. See for yourself. Remarkably enough are the clerks in both churches very imporsonal as if smiling is a capital sin.

We were lucky enough to be able to observe services being conducted while visiting the beautiful church. The Church is easily one of the highlights of delightful Tallinin. Uncrowded but all worth 15-20 minutes. The icons and interior details are stunning.
