Uspenski Orthodox Cathedral

Two cathedrals dominate Helsinki’s silhuette: Lutheran Cathedral and Uspenski Orthodox Cathedral. The contrast between the two is incredible – other one is white from out and from inside, meanwhile the Orthodox one has 13 golden cupolas and really elaborated interiors. But in the winter, when the snow keeps on falling, even gold turns white.
