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.

A beautiful, imposing cathedral, externally with expansive views across the city and, internally a large open space strikingly illuminated by large windows in the walls and domes. Slightly disappointed that tourists were hemmed into just one side and unable to wander around, however, it was clearly in use by worshippers. Immobile visitors may find the trek uphill challenging.
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!
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.
What a beautiful Cathedral this is! Really a must to go. We loved it here. Just go !
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
