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.
