Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) reviews
This is very nice cathedral by the market place at the entry of the Katajanokka. This is one of the kind in Finland. Very nice. more »
It's very pretty and worth visiting. It's a little difficult to find the way to get it, it is clear to see the building, but you have to walk up to it from behind if you want to go in. more »
This orthodox church located pretty near to the harbor and top of the hill. One of the beauty of European churches in nowadays is anyone can enter as a tourist and enjoy the beautiful architecture as well interiors. Market square, and many more attractive places are nearby.
Impressive building! Lovely to admire on the outside and on the inside. Religious ceremonies take place in this church, it is not a museum. When we went there, we had the chance to see an Orthodox wedding. It was a lovely experience. I definitely recommend to visit it.
