Completed in 1868 in the Katajanokka district of Helsinki, the Uspenski Cathedral is the largest orthodox church in Western Europe. With its golden cupolas and redbrick facade, the church is one of the clearest symbols of the Russian impact on Finnish history.
Mon closed, Tue-Fri 9.30-16, Sat 10-15, Sun 12-15. Closed during ceremonies.
There are many stairs and inclines in the Cathedral, which is why moving e.g. in a wheelchair is difficult. There is an accessible toilet, but it’s not easy to reach. In summer, there is a temporary ramp to the church to make it easier to access.
