A espectacular can't miss place to visit. Along with the beautiful church, there are great views overlooking the harbor for great picture opportunities.

A beautiful, grand cathedral resplendent in red sandstone the outside is something special. Interior is also beautiful and the terrace around the outside gives good views of the city and harbour.

Visible from great distances this picturesque cathedral does not blend with the rest of Helsinki's architecture but stands on its own. If you want an unforgettable experience and don't mind standing for hours on end and not understanding what is said, attend a service.

Russian Orthodox Cathedrals are some of my favorite places to visit. I love the ornate walls of icons and the architecture. This one is a great one. Just remember to be quiet when inside.

The Uspenski Cathedral is the largest orthodox church in Western Europe. With its golden cupolas and redbrick facade, the church is one of the clearest symbols of the Russian impact on Finnish history.

Gorgeous architecture which seems to rise above the wintry weather (at least in February). Finnish rather than Russian orthodox and the seat of that faith.

It is the largest Orthodox church in Western Europe built in the 18th century, and the Archdiocese seat in Finland. Its deep-red brick walls, monolithic granite pillars and green-and-gold 13 onion domes are incredibly picturesque — the domes represent Christ and the twelve apostles.
