Looks like a bunker from the outside, but astonishing beauty within! Can get a bit crowded with all the tourists.

What a beautiful church. In the middle of sleeping area, inside of the rocky hill there is a round church. So pure, simple and elegant!

This was beautiful. It was peaceful. The church design in the rock face was astounding. Beautiful light coming through and a great place for reflection.

This was the no 1 tourist spot on our list. Amazing how they carved it out of a solid rock and produced this nice and solemn place. You get inside for a fee..Beautiful place..

Some think it is a bit over rated as the most popular venue in town but I like the atmosphere inside. A truly unique place.

I think I expected more from this church based on the pictures. It was beautiful inside, but I don't think this is a "must-see." People were inside the church praying and it felt awkward with big tourist groups. If you love looking at churches, I suspect you'll feel a nice sense of solemnity and enjoy the rock features.

Really beautiful and atmospheric modern church built into the rock and covered with an enormous dome. Quite busy with tourists but still managed to have a very serene and contemplative atmosphere. Background music encourages you to sit still and enjoy the peace. Perfect for a chilled-out moment in a hectic tourist schedule!

We had a short visit with the panorama tour bus. The church is amazing! Get there and have a look. Entrance is for free with Helsinki card!
