Uspenski Cathedral, Helsinki

Today we are adding to our huge collection of cathedrals with our second cathedral in Helsinki. The Uspenski Cathedral is an Eastern Orthodox cathedral in Helsinki, Finland, dedicated to the Dormition of Theotokos (Virgin Mary).

On the back of the cathedral is a plaque commemorating Tsar Alexander II of Russia, who was the ruler of Finland during its construction. It is the main cathedral of the Finnish Orthodox Church in the diocese of Helsinki, and the largest orthodox church in Western Europe.
