The Uzbekistan Church in Helsinki, Finland is cleverly designed with a strong Moscow architectural style. The interior of the church is extremely simple, and the paintings are all done by Russian painters, completely retaining the artistic style of the traditional Orthodox church. It is the largest Greek Orthodox church on Scandinavia.
Its thirteen golden domes, and the quaint red brick faade, between the contours of Helsinki's city, highlight a trace of Russia's religious legacy in Finland. The conspicuous gold domes and red-brick churches are extraordinarily dignified, and the two large trees next to each other are in harmony with the church, which is a testimony to the infiltration of Russian customs into Finnish history. The
Usbeski Orthodox Church was built in 1868. The deep red Russian style, which is full of splendid traditional decoration, is the largest Orthodox church in Northern Europe.
Built between 1862 and 1868, the Uspenski Cathedral is striking in its golden-green domes and red brick walls, with Russian architecture. Perhaps most people think that its name is hard to remember, and more people like to call the Red Church here.
The color and style of the red church are full of mysterious colors. The thirteen golden domes of the church, and the quaint red brick faade, between the contours of the city of Helsinki, highlight the traces left by Russia in the Finnish religion. The conspicuous gold domes and red-brick churches are extraordinarily dignified, and the two large trees next to each other are in harmony with the church, which is a testimony to the infiltration of Russian customs into Finnish history.
It is said that these 13 golden domes represent Jesus and his 12 disciples. The largest golden dome in the middle represents Jesus. The cost is about 80,000 Euros. The 12 small gold domes around him cost around 4 to 60,000 Euros. The 13 gold-plated onion-headed gold domes were re-plated by the Orthodox Church in 2008 and then installed. The red bricks in the main part of the building were fired in a brick factory in northern Finland and shipped here. The interior of the
red church is even more amazing than the outside! The sculpted vaults and granite pillars are the two main features of the Uspensky Cathedral. The paintings inside the church were completed by Russian painters, completely retaining the artistic style of the traditional Orthodox Church. It is the largest Greek Orthodox church on Scandinavia. Churches in Europe are cumbersome and heavy, like a piece of art, but with a unique soul.

In the early morning, with the tram's orbit first coming to the Uspenski church with a strong Moscow architectural style, then to the extraordinary white Helsinki Cathedral, and then to the church's wooden structure silent church, then Also came to the unique rock church in the world. After a round of sitting, sitting down, silent or praying, at the moment of being in the church, I can always hear my voice and find humanity and sacredness. Leap thousands of kilometers to come to God, pray that my family and friends are safe and healthy.
The Uspenski Orthodox Cathedral was built in 1862 on the slopes of the Kadayano Peninsula and was completed in six years. It is the larger Orthodox church on Scandinavia, and the Finns call it the “Russian Church”. The exterior of the church is composed of a red main color with a representative onion top. The interior dome depicts gorgeous decorative paintings and religious allusions, and has a rich traditional Eastern Orthodox church art style. There are thirteen towers in the church. The crosses on all the spires face the east, symbolizing Jesus and the twelve apostles. The shape is very striking.
