As you turn the corner the view of this cathedral is awesome. We didn't time it well to visit as there was a mass on but we were allowed to stand quietly at the back. Have to be honest it was a very moving experience

Close to the city. But total different atmosphere : silence and sacrifice. Beautiful Russian orthodoxe church. Free entry and nice interior. Loved this place.

I’m not sure of those. However the church is open between 12:30 and 6PM. Perhaps service is in the morning. Again I am not 100%
