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.

A beautiful appearing church - on a hill and of intriguing red brick. We couldn’t go in as it was closed. It is situated right by the market square so easy to include on a walking trip at the square.

I gave this monument a passing visit and loved the outdoors. The building looks truly impressive and fall colours made it even better.

This is a hard to miss cathedral since it is visible from the downtown harbor area. It is a short walk from the harbor area. The exterior stands out as classic Russian Orthodox. Since the cathedral was closed at the time, I cannot speak about...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.
