Uspenski Cathedral

The square towards the eastern end of Aleksanterinkatu is overlooked by the onion domes of the Russian Orthodox Uspenski Cathedral. Inside, there’s a glitzy display of icons. Beyond is Katajanokka, a wedge of land extending between the harbours; with its beautiful Art Nouveau architecture it’s one of the city’s most atmospheric places to walk around.
