Uspenski Orthodox Cathedral - Review
The Uspenski Orthodox Cathedral is something of an icon in Helsinki. A lot of tourists will swear by this site being a definite must see in the city and why not? The imposing and exquisite building that stands at a slight height overlooking the whole city is an impressive structure. The brown stone architecture with the turquoise colored tops in itself makes it a popular tourist attraction.
However, it is the inside of the church that is the most striking. The gorgeous altar is sure to be the most memorable experience of your Helsinki Holiday. The altar is decorated with elaborate paintings of religious figures that are worth a see whether or not you belong to the religion or practice the faith.
The interiors have been intricately decorated in gold and white and everywhere you look you will see extremely detailed designs and painting. The church is undoubtedly a must visit for this astonishing beauty. Do not miss it! Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Helsinki itinerary 2 days.

Uspenski Orthodox Cathedral, Helsinki Reviews
I only saw this church from the outside but it sits impressively near the harbor on a hill. It is near the Presidential Palace and the open air market. It was built in the 19th century and is another sign of the close ties Finland has had with Russia. It is closed on Mondays.
Beautiful church. I wish they would have opened more areas inside for public viewing. Please give me a thumbs up "like" for this review... Thanks!
Located on a elevated top, offers nice views around the place. The cathedral itself is majestic both the interior and exterior. Closing time 17:00hrs
A Helsinki landmark, worth visiting regardless of if it is open or closed. The brick building is in traditional Russian church. There are images outside the church you can check out. Walk around, to the back as well, to see the different architectural elements. There is a great view of Helsinki from the front of the church as well.
Completed in 1868 in the Katajanokka district of Helsinki, 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.
