Rock Church, Helsinki

4.1
#2 of 1,669 in Things to do in Finland
Known for its striking copper dome, Rock Church has been carved from rock in the heart of the city. Designed by siblings Tim and Tuomo Suomalainen and finished in 1969, this distinctive Lutheran church is directly excavated into rock. Explore the church's interior, which consists of rock and marble walls, with the shining copper dome supported by concrete beams at the top of the structure. Note the light shining in through the skylight on what is commonly called the Church of Rock. Take time to listen to the acoustics, made possible by the church's exposed walls. Rock Church is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Helsinki Edition.

  • Christians are not a big inspiration, but there's plenty of interest in interior design, and it's interesting. Also the manual for the Korean people have doubts, just admission cost heh heh heh, Richard

  • Beautiful architecture. Special place, carved out of the rock. Right in the Centre of Helsinki. Entrance €3.

  • It has been carved inside a rock. So, when it rains outside, the water pours in through the roof. Very peaceful. This church has so much character.  more »
