I could have spent another hour there. We were pressed for time. It was incredible and one of the most magnificent church I have ever seen because it was natural rock.

Try to visit when there are few people around in other words first thing in the morning or early evening. If you see two or three coaches outside don't even bother to go in .

This is an absolute gem built in to the natural rock of which Helsinki is composed. The acoustics are brilliant and if you can possibly go to an organ recital or a concert then do so. It's worth looking before you go using the relevant website.

Look out for the natural stream that flows down one side of the rock inside the church. The flow depends on the time of year.

There is no charge to get in and overall I really recommend doing Helsinki on foot and using public transport. Don't even think of driving unless you want to spend a fortune on parking tickets or fines. There is no parking outside the church.

I am not quite impressed by the church though seems it is a must visit in Helsinki. Beware you have to wait if there is mass there.

What might otherwise have been a wonderful experience was turned into a 'let's get out of here as fast as we can'. Due to the sudden arrival of at least one coach party overwhelming the tranquility. Choose your visiting time carefully.

Got to listen to a live jazz concert here - amazing experience!
Located short walk (uphill) from city centre - well worth a visit, although cobblestreets part of the way.
