Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, Tallinn

Postmarked Tallinn, dated 1 July 2009.
Alexander Nevsky Cathedral

This is the only Russian Orthodox cathedral in Tallinn.  It was built in 1900 when Estonia was part of the Russian Tsaris empire.  The church is dedicated to the Prince of Novogorod, Alexander Yaroslavitz Nevsky.  Before it was built there was a garden with a memorial to Martin Luther.
