During our tour we stopped and visited the Uspenski Cathedral, an Eastern Orthodox cathedral. Imposing outside, beautiful inside. Quiet place and beautiful icons. Outside you also can see a spectacular view of Helsinki, the port and the Helsinki Cathedral.

Uspenskin Cathedral was one of the landmarks in Helsinki, it is close to the Market Square. It made an interesting pair with the white cathedral in Senate Square.

The cathedral was beautiful inside and out. Although it was busy and crowded, it was well worth the effort to visit. The inside of the cathedral was grand. I would go again if given the opportunity.

It's closed on Monday. They are only opened for a couple of hours on other days if the week too. Though it is worth going in, just looking at the church and walking around it to see the 360 view of Helsinki bay is nice, too.
