"Beautiful Orthodox church near the waterfront" Uspenskin Katedraali (Uspenski Orthodox Cathedral) Tip by BillNJ
Uspenskin Katedraali (Uspenski Orthodox Cathedral), Helsinki: 89 reviews and 156 photos
From the Market Square on the waterfront, you can see the beautiful Uspenski Orthodox Church perched atop a small hill. With my umbrella, I walked in the rain across a few streets and through a maze of sidewalks. Finally, I reached the church -- and I proceeded to walk completely around it. Even in the steady rain, I enjoyed seeing this marvelous building up close.
After seeing the outside, I decided to go inside and view the interior. The door was open -- and I soon discovered that I had walked in a side entrance across from the altar of the church in the middle of a wedding! I caught a glimpse of the young couple -- but, of course, I didn't stay to hear them exchange vows.
