This is the Russian Orthodox Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. Luckily, Soviet alternative competence reconfigured the directive to mow down the old town and build workers' (was it?) housing or other proletarian delights, and the old town remains. Generally, with one or two minor glitches, the "town" has managed to preserve its heritage well, and the new buildings that go up down-town go down well. Posted by Picasa

The old town of Tallinn is truly spectacular. Long may Tallinn City authorities keep tight planning restrictions in place!
