I had some free time while in Helsinki, and given this grand cathedral was very visible from the harbour front, I thought I'd pop up and have a look. It's a very ornate, highly decorated Orthodox cathedral inside, very beautiful, so definitely worth going in...More

This won't disappoint you. It is very impressive from the outside, and when you walk in, you know, that you are in Russian orthodox church... it is opulent and gold... it was nice to see, and I recommend it.

Russian Orthodox history and influence in the area. Near the harbour. Beautiful church, take the time to understand the history as it will make your visit more enjoyable

It's closed on Monday. They are only opened for a couple of hours on other days if the week too. Though it is worth going in, just looking at the church and walking around it to see the 360 view of Helsinki bay is nice, too.
