Nikolsky Cathedral is a cathedral of the Karelian Archdiocese of the Patriarchate of Constantinople in the city of Kuopio.
The church, consecrated in honor of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker, was built of red brick in 1902-1903. The project of the church building, designed for 250 parishioners, was developed by the Vyborg architect Alexander Isakson. The temple was consecrated by Bishop Nikolai of Vyborg and Finland.
The bell tower of St. Nicholas Cathedral has seven bells cast in St. Petersburg. The largest of them weighs 1688 kg. The iconostasis of the cathedral was also made by masters from St. Petersburg at the expense of the wife of the governor-general of the Grand Duchy of Finland N. Bobrikov. Some of the icons for the Nikolsky Cathedral were brought from the temples of Karelia by settlers in 1939-1940.
