Photos of Helsinki Cathedrals
Helsinki is home to two majestic cathedrals that are landmarks which can be seen from throughout the city. Helsinki Cathedral (Helsingin tuomiokirkko) is an Evangelical Lutheran Cathedral designed by Carl Ludvig Engel and built in the 19th century. It is a large white building built in a cross-plan with four equal sized arms. The cathedral sits at one end of Senate Square. Uspensky or Uspenski Cathedral (Uspenskin katedraali) is a Russian Orthodox Cathedral built in the Katajanokka distict on top of a hillside overlooking the city. The cathedral was designed by Aleksei M. Gornostaev and is dedicated to the Dormition. Both cathedrals are popular tourist attractions and I highly recommend visiting them if you are in Helsinki.
