Lovely

Beautiful setting, interior and exterior.close to the harbour and market. Never felt the city's proximity to Russia more than in this building.

I walked up to the cathedral. It looks larger from the outside than inside. It has some nice decoration, but nothing spectacular. Overall worth the walk and a few minutes.

As Finland is mostly protestant country, there's not that many orthodox churches/cathedrals. It's impressive and feels like a part of the Old East (Classical Russian)

Pretty Cathedral. Very close to the city centre and located on a small hill. Easy to spot from a distance and located right next to the daily market.

What I really liked about this church is the red brick architecture. Also, it's actually a lot smaller than the impression it gives. Inside, it's highly ornate, and you can buy beautiful souvenirs at very reasonable prices. This is still an active place of worship.

The external presence of the cathedral is visually impressive. Once you climb the stairs, there is an open patio. The cathedral seems smaller than it should be inside but the beauty and grandeur of the interior is worth a visit.

A beautiful Orthodox Church...both inside fm out. We happened to enter during mass and stayed to observe. The music and painted icons were beautiful. It's a hike up the hill, but well worth it.

This cathedral stands out amongst the plainer ones in Helsinki. It is beautiful but the area is quite touristy so go early to avoid the crowds.

A lovely Russian Orthodox Church on top of a hill near the main square. You cannot miss it, it towers over the square anad is well worth the climb.

It definitely deserves a visit. 5 minutes walking from the market and the wheel, surrounded by a nice small park, it is a very beautiful church.
