Subtle and gracious and very different from other churches. The ceiling is a sight to behold. Amazing acoustics too. Fabulous

The rock church is built into a rock face, but is light inside courtesy of lovely lights in the ceiling.

The acoustic of the organ is excellent.

Just a wonderful peaceful change from all the over gilded churches that are found all around europe.
The photos don't do it justice - we were really glad we made the small effort to see it.
It was an easy walk from the train/bus station in centre of Helsinki, and on the way back you can drop into the museum.

This church is so unique! Built into solid rock, the interior is definitely worth a look. You cannot help but appreciate this original architecture. Loved it!

It was worth visiting! A different church experience. Check opening hours before going there. When we visited on a Saturday they closed the church a couple of times per day for weddings.
