Orthodox Easter Sunday

Today is Easter Sunday in the Orthodox calendar. A day of celebration for Greeks, Russians, Bulgarians, Romanians, Serbs, Georgians, Armenians, Latvians, Estonians, Ukrainians, Belorussians and a host of others. Here are a few Orthodox cathedrals & churches that I have visited over the years. Χριστός ἀνέστη!

Uspenski Cathedral is the largest Orthodox cathedral in Western Europe. Overlooking Market Square and the harbour it makes an imposing rival for skyline with Helsinki’s main cathedral.
