Uspenski Cathedral Helsinki
Just like nearby Helsinki Cathedral, Uspenski Cathedral is an iconic sight in Finland's capital, and should be high atop any visitors to-do list when coming to the city. Uspenski serves as the main cathedral of the Finnish Orthodox Diocese.
To see the best sights of Finland's capital, guests should choose a Helsinki city centre hotel that puts them in the middle of the mix. By booking the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel, Helsinki, guests can reach Uspenski Cathedral on foot in just 15 minutes, and doze on Magic Dreams beds at the end of a day's travels.

Located in Helsinki's Kanalgatan neighbourhood, Uspenski Cathedral has been at the head of the Finnish Orthodox Church for 150 years.
With red walls and green-and-gold spires, the design of the cathedral has a distinctly Russian feel, and was created by architect Alexey Gornostaev before his death in 1862. Another eye-catching aspect of Uspenski Cathedral is its size, as it is the largest Orthodox church in Western Europe.
Inside the cathedral, guests will marvel at the ornate decorations that line the walls and ceilings, plus its one-of-a-kind iconostasis, a collection of icons that sits behind the church pulpit.
