It is actually the largest Orthodox Church in Western Europe, and it stands absolutely beautifully in the snow: the Uspenski Cathedral, in Helsinki, Finland.
It was designed by a russian architect Aleksey Gornostayev and was built after his death at the end of the 19th century.
It looks over the Finnish capital of Helsinki and is a symbol of Russian impact on the history of Finland.
Don’t miss the golden cupolas and red brick facade of the largest orthodox church in Europe:
