This is the best place that I visited out of my two days trip to Helsinki. Rocky walls and metallic looking ceiling makes the difference to ones we normally go as church. We are lucky to witness choir and opera - it was more a practice event, but accoustic, music and the environment was excellent. Very nominal fee for entrance - escape from cold outside as well for a good time that we spent there.

A very special place, hidden away in the rocks. Special feeling and light inside. Very reasonable entry price. A thing to do in Helsinki

Service is at 10 am in Finnish. Follows Lutheran format just could not understand. Definitely worth it. Church itself is beautiful, very acoustical. Easy walk from the train station or number two tram.

I was overwhelmed by the impression live music made on the athmosphere of the building having never heard it before. This was an extempore visit to a free concert given by the official representative orchestra of Finland, the oldest professional too dating back to 1819. The Guards Band didn't play any classical military music but modern pieces by Finnish composers like Magnus Lindberg's Gran Duo. Sounds by the wind instruments resonated from the rock walls and copper cupola.

Wanted to see this place, but did not realize it was not open Sat / Sun. Did go to the outside of the building, and it is massive in scope, would like to see the real deal.

This is a must to visit whilst in Helsinki. Simply incredible from an engineering perspective as this church was literally dynamited into the existence. You can see the channels where the dynamite was drilled in to the rock. The roof, which is made from 14 kilometres of copper is breath taking. The 1960’s design is like something from a sci-fi movie. Apparently the acoustics here is extraordinary so would love to come back to listen to a classic concert here one day.

This is an incredibly beautiful church; the design is simply stunning and it has a wonderful atmosphere.
It is easy to get to by tram and a short walk and is well worth a visit. There is a small fee to enter

I may say that this is the most beautiful original church I’ve ever seen.
Actually built inside a huge rock, u can feel and sense originality and creativeness.
A must visit.
Entry costs 4euros.
