Katajanokka is separated from the mainland by a canal and begins just east of Kauppatori. A charming residential quarter as well as a cargo- and passenger-ship port, this area also has one of the city's main landmarks, the dazzling Orthodox Uspenskin Katedraali, one of the biggest cathedrals in Europe. Not far from Katajanokka is the elegant Lutheran Cathedral that dominates Senaatintori. The Ateneumin Taidemuseo is also nearby.
