I usually dont enjoy modern church buildings. This one amazed and moved me. Well done. Je suis d'ordinaire peu fan des églises modernes. Celle là m'a émerveillé voir même ému. Superbe.

If you are interested in architecture this is a must-do. Very Scandinavian 1960s design incorporating natural rock, plus the extensive copper covering. Very worthwhile.

Temppeliaukio Church in finnish, well it is a lutheran church, carved in the rock. Seems popular, you should pay to enter however nothing much to see and I think it is overrated in comparison to other similar places like that.

Church was very well designed with natural lightings. Walk up the balcony to have a good view of the whole area.

This is one of the most unusual church. It is built into the ground like a cave. The inside is beautiful with its rock walls. Seems to be a popular place to visit. You do need to buy a ticket.

Fair question! Official Helsinki web page gives following answer: "Closed during church ceremonies and events." I would recommend to contact tourist office to get detailed information. Good luck
