Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) Reviews
Suosittelen arkkitehtuurista kiinnostuneille, ja kirkkohistoriasta kiinnostuneille. Täällä on myös syntikoppi, käy puhdistamassa syntisi papin puheilla, oli mitä oli, hän ei näe kasvojasi. more »I recommend the architecture for those interested, and for those interested in church history. There's also a scapegoat, it's about cleansing your sins with the priest's speeches, was what he was, he didn't see your face.
No centro de Helsinque, fácil de chegar, localizada em um lugar alto. Bela vista da cidade a partir do pátio. No interior, vale a pena admirar os quadros e as pinturas nas paredes. more »In the center of Helsinki, easy to reach, located in a high place. Beautiful view of the city from the courtyard. Inside, it is worth admiring the paintings and paintings on the walls.
This cathedral is lovely from outside and inside. You can also get a good view of the city as a bonus when you visit this cathedral. Decorations inside are very good. Anything that can be decorated has indeed been decorated. A lovely Russian Orthodox Cathedral. Maybe the best cathedral to visit in Helsinki.
This beautiful old church stands out in Helsinki during the day and night. Captivating to say the least! We had taken pictures from afar and one evening we walked up the curved stairway to get up close. Loved looking at all the exterior detail. We didn’t go inside as it was closed however we were quite satisfied admiring the night view and the church had a special glow being lit up on the outside.
