“Pretty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

Could only stick our heads in to have a look as there was a christening.

Key landmark on the harbour, worth having a look inside.

“Nice if you have time to spare”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

We made the effort of climbing up to the Uspenski Cathedral. The cathedal is in Byzantine (Russian) style. If you like the style and design this is a must-see. Surely a historic piece, but it doesn't really fit the Finnish style.
The interior is quite small in comparison with the impressive exterior.
Not wheelchair friendly.
Central location, 500m east from market on the end of Esplanade.

You must see this cathedral, i think the only magnificent architecture in Helsinki you can find. Its highly elevated and say on top of the world. Its about 30 minutes walk from the Grand marina

“Nice but not exceptional”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012

Nice Russian Orthodox church with a beautiful iconostasis, however if you come from Russia, Ukraine etc. I'm sure you wouldn't be to impressed since there is a lot nicer ones over there.
Still worth a visit

“A little bit of Russia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

This is well worth a visit. It is built on a hill and the architecture is very Russian with its onion domes. Inside it is beautifully painted. Another peaceful place to visit.
