Not sure it was worth 'paying' to spent about 10 minutes in a moderrn church heaving with tourists. Try to slip in without paying or even give it a miss.

A must see! So beautiful. Unexpected location for a church amongst the rocks. The organ music sounded so beautiful.

A very interesting place, different but yet kind of modern thinking. One would search for a church by looking for bell towers but this if different. 15-20min of time will give you a very nice overview of the place.

Though the church is small but the architect and its design was amazing. Interior were rocks with natural light coming in from the round roof top edge.

A very interesting architecture for sure. But the moment was ruined by very noisy Chinese tourists that were abundant. Suggest to visit of peak hours.

This was a stunning church nestled in the granite rocked. Beautifully design, and use of wood and light was very peaceful. Well, it would have been if not for the very verbal gaggles of tourists who showed little respect for the sanctity of the church...More

Generally church services in Finland are down to earth and open for everyone. Therefore just open the door and sit in the bench.
