The Uspenski Cathedral is the largest Orthodox church in all of Western Europe. Dating back to the mid 19th Century, the Cathedral is a good example of the impact of Russia's occupation of Finland. The Cathedral features a large statue of Czar Alexander II, a further reminder of this Russian influence. The Uspenski Cathedral made headlines in 2007 when one if its most valuable articles, its icon of St. Nicolas, was stolen in broad daylight.
