“Something different”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Its a bit out the way but worth a visit. It is a one of a kind building. Regardless of your beliefs it is a beautiful, quiet place that is worth taking an hour to visit.

“Definitely Worth Seeing”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Yes, this is one of Helsinki's most popular attractions and for very good reason. The interior is stunning. The acoustics are superb. In the afternoon there is often a piano recital for which it would be appropriate to leave a tip. The space also used for ensemble performances. Whether you are religious, secular, atheistic or some blend of these, the church will capture your imagination and stay with you in your memory.

“unique modern church”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

built in a year - this incredible church built of and on solid rock is awe inspiring- I would call this one a must see while visiting Helsinki- easily accessible by the tram line that circles the city center.

“A Must See in Helsinki”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

How many churches built into rock have you ever seen? Precisely none will be the answer for most people. This is an attraction you simply must see if you're in Helsinki.

“A must”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

It is always wonderful to watch people's expressions when you take them to visit this amazing church. Secretly hidden under a massive rock one expects to enter a dark and mysterious place, but on the contrary you are standing in a wide open room filled with beautiful day light and soothing music.
