Nice Red building-Uspenski Cathedral, Helsinki

Uspenski Cathedral in Helsinki was a bright building located on a rock, visible from a distance. I was waiting for ferry to go to Soumenlinna Island, I had about 15 minutes to spare. When I looked around this building caught my attention. So I walked towards it in quick steps.

It took a moment to figure out the right way to top, as one of the ways was closed. Once on top I took a set of photographs from outside, but couldn't go inside due to shortage of time. Also it was not yet open that day.

At first I had wondered if this is the rock church, since it was located on a big rock. Soon figured out it is not. Details about this Uspenski Cathedral can be found on Wikipedia if you're interested.
