Uspenski Cathedral

Helsinki, Finland's dynamic capital, is a popular stop for those touring the Scandinavian countries. When there, visitors should definitely experience the majestic Uspenski Cathedral. This historical landmark is certainly hard to overlook, as it is the largest Orthodox Church in Western Europe and sits perched on a rocky hilltop jutting out into the Katajanokka Peninsula. Built in 1868 by Gornastayev, this beauty boasts a Russian Byzantine style of architecture and features many exquisite details, including mosaics, chandeliers, vaults, domes, and religious icons. The church still functions as a worship centre for local Orthodox congregations.

  • Book a tour of Helsinki that stops at the Uspenski Cathedral to enjoy all the historic sites within the city; cathedral tours are free to the public.
  • Enjoy taking beautiful snapshots at this iconic Helsinki location; this gorgeous building makes a perfect subject, but be advised that flash photography is not allowed inside.
  • Tour the surrounding city sights on a boat tour that travels through the city's scenic canals and includes an exterior view of the cathedral.

The Uspenski Cathedral is centrally located and can be easily reached from the harbour, esplanade, or the marketplace. It is not recommended to rent a car to tour Helsinki because parking is scarce and costly, so other transportation options are preferred. Trams operate throughout the city and route 4 can take visitors to the cathedral via the Katajanokan Puisto stop or the nearby Ritarihuone stop. Taxis are also available within the city and can transport visitors to the cathedral. Those with nearby hotels will enjoy exploring the area on foot.
