A beautiful appearing church - on a hill and of intriguing red brick. We couldn’t go in as it was closed. It is situated right by the market square so easy to include on a walking trip at the square.

I gave this monument a passing visit and loved the outdoors. The building looks truly impressive and fall colours made it even better.

This cathedral is very unique and was very close to our hotel so we saw it everyday. It is quite difficult to take a photo of as it is awkwardly positioned to the road. However with perseverance...it would make for a fabulous photo opportunity

While waiting for a ferry we decided to go up and take a closer look. Inside was interesting and the Cathedral itself was picture worthy.

Uspenskin Cathedral is beautiful on the outside and the inside. The inside is on the smaller side so we had to wait to get in, but it was worth the wait to see the intricate details inside.

So beautiful you can't decide where to look first. So worth the walk up the hill to see the inside, such a peaceful place. If you are in the city after sunset the Cathedral is lite up and even more breathtaking. We arrived on Monday...More

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.
