The cathedral is part gift shop, part house of worship. Depending on when you visit, you may find yourself mobbed with tour groups or alone with a group of worshippers. The interior is quite impressive, but make sure to take the time to walk around the outside and enjoy the architecture - especially if you won't be going on to Russia itself. As this is an active cathedral, please be respectful. Dress appropriately and be conscious of your voice and manners.

It's well worth a look inside as the interior is very ornate, adorned with many icons and frescos. To be honest it's impossible to do it justice - even my photo doesn't come close.

There are some rules to follow when entering the orthodox church, but tourists are not punished. However, it is not so difficult to follow the rules and pay your respect to the holy place: men must have their hair uncovered, while women must cover their heads. Also, it is not recommended to show too much naked flesh in the church (cover your knees and shoulders).
