Description: The magnificent St Alexander Nevsky Orthodox Cathedral , in Tallinn , Estonias capital , overlooks the city from Toompea Hill . It was designed by Mikhail Preobrazhensky and built in the end of the 19th century , when the country was part of the Russian Empire . Not only its fa├žade is striking , but its vaulted interior is richly decorated with marbles and paintings . Although heavily bombed at the end of WWII , most of the historical part of Tallinn survived , and its unique preserved ensemble of medieval buildings and walls was declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1997 .
