Notes: These are four churches in Tallinn, Estonia.  The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral is the newest of the four, having been built in the late 1800s.  On the other hand, the St. Olaf's was originally built in the 12th century,  and St. Nicholas and the Dome Church (also known as St. Mary's Cathedral) were originally built in the 13th century.

How coincidental - I just saw the movie "The Last Reef" in the Omnimax Theater at the Museum of Science and Industry on the same day that I have a reef card scheduled to post.
