Uspenski Cathedral is one of the main cathedral and place to visit in Helsinki. The architecture of this church is like Russian style And it's amazing. The church is near the sea and at night it look more beautiful. There are lot of cafes around the church.
If you take time to really explore both the exterior and interior of this old Russian Orthodox Cathedral in the heart of Helsinki, you be totally amazed with its structure as a building, but also the significance it has played in Finnish history. It was also fun trying to speak in broken Russian and convoluted English to the priest on duty at the religious souvenir shop inside. Consequently, I couldn't help but but a tiny replica of one the religious icons which cover the inside walls of the church.
