The beautiful old town of the estonian capital Tallin is full of the rich heritage and inheritance the russian influence left over the centuries. One of the impressing examples is certainly the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, home to the russian-orhtodox community in the city. The cathedral was built in 1894 and was due to demolition during the first estonian independence in 1924. Fortunately this didn't happen and today one can enjoy a beautiful view over the city of Tallin from its front porch, as it sits on a hill behind the city.

Very beautiful and colourful architecture picture!
You don't show us the entire cathedral but I like the inclusion of the facades of the old houses on the foreground.
That composition is very attractive.
Best regards, Paul

I have to be completely honest, i really don't know anything about Estonia. Perhaps Europeans are more familiar with its history and such than we are over here in North America.
For sure the Russian influence is here, seen and felt.
the domes have an odd graphic visual effect, its rather interesting.
cool pic to share.

How wonderful that this beautiful place was spared from being demolished!
You have captured this lovely building perfectly in a fine diagonal composition and those lovely "onion shaped" roofs are perfectly placed in the frame against a lovely sky.
Lovely soft light and vibrant colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.
Have a lovely Sunday,

Good seen and captured. Perfect layout of this typical Russian Orthodox architecture in Talinn. Nice pastell colors and perfect sharpness.
TFS and have a nice weekend

ottima composizione e gradevole postproduzione che trasforma il colore in una serie di tinte pastello che si stagliano nette e simili a disegni.
Ciao e buona domenica

A beautiful detail from this lovely cathedral with deep colors and sharp detail. I love these onion domes. I wish the top of the third cross and the left edge of the building could also be seen.
