I was lucky enough to visit at a time that a christening was taking place. The beauty of the art, accessible only from the public gallery, led to a sense of awe and wonderment. This Russian Orthadox Cathedral is worth visiting and around the corner...More

OK Cathedral. But I've visited perhaps 50+ better cathedrals around the world. This one's too small, both interior and exterior. But it's always good to be in a cathedral and have some time of silence though.

Beautiful orthodox cathedral, a must if you do not know this type of buildings. Beautiful exterior point of view and internally richly decorated.

Really something to behold. Built on a hill, it’s presence overlooking some of Helsinki is quite imposing, the architecture is incredible and the detail and design inside is a must-see. Free to enter and visit.

I was in Helsinki for a brief time. I had a 10 hour airport layover and took the 30 min train to the main city center and then walked to the ferry station and then to this imposing cathedral. It looked so good for a...More

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.
