“Stunning building.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

Whatever your religous beliefs, there is no doubt the architechture and decoration of this beautiful Cathedral is worth a visit. The gold leaf looks astonishing in the summer sunshine, so while the building is at the top of a small hill, it's worth the small effort. Beautiful.

“Beautiful Cathedral”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

Very beautiful cathedral, definitely with strong Eastern influence. It's a very nice contrast to Helsinki's main cathedral in the city center. Very beautiful, old building.

“Orthodox Church”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

A little short climb up on the hill around the corner. Parking lots right infront of the church. Heard that it was the largest orthodox church in western europe overlooking the city. It was very beautiful to me as didnt get to see much church in this colour. During dusk, may look kind of errky but still as beautiful from the outside.
