One of the biggest Orthodox Church I've been to! Great atmosphere, but there are a lot of tourist in there. You can see also the faithful. No idea if they can focus on their prayers if a lot of people visit the church and take the pictures.

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.

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
