From the outside the church is very dramatic and beautiful as it sits on top of a hill by the water. The area inside the church that you can actually visit is quite small. The mosaics are pretty, but so are the mosaics in many other churches. Worth a look, but don't expect to be there long.

This cathedral is very near to the main Helsink Cathedral which is probably the biggest old structure in the city. Uspenski cathedral is a relatively small one but has a different architecture unlike other european cathedrals.


The city doesnt have many attractions - this is one of the few. Dont compare this with grand structures of rest of the europe.

Beautiful building. Nice view of the town from the church. The interior is nothing particular, unfortunately

In Helsinki the cathedrals are all magificent, specially this Uspenski cathedral. Uspenski Cathedral is an Eastern Orthodox cathedral in Helsinki, built in 1862–1868 and designed by architect Aleksey Gornostayev. Beautiful Ikons and you can listen relaxing organ musik . It is little bit tourist trap with all the souvenirs.
