I dont see what's the hype. It's a tiny church, and the ONLY place where you have to pay to enter. And believe me... it's really not all that. If you want to see an incredible church carved in the stone in the mountain, you'd have to go to Cairo, Egypt for that. Don't waste your time!

During our visit we were treated to an orchestral rehearsal, which made the space really atmospheric.

However even without this bonus, it's a phenomenal space which has to be seen to be believed.

For the full experience, try to see a performance as the acoustics are incredible.

We visited the Rock Church during a visit to Helsinki. It was very impressive, and well worth the walk!

This church is totally unique. I have no idea how someone came up with the awesome idea building church on a bedrock. The entrance is a little hard to find though. Once
you are in, you will be amazed at how peaceful and serene it felt inside. Acoustics seemed excellent as pipe organ that was being played sounded out of this world.
such a unique architectural masterpiece.

We need the entrance fee 3€ to enter this church. Nothing much to see, but this church builds by rocks, totally different with the usual church.
