#2 of 1,645 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.

  • Whats made me realize I have many stone-built church, and large, world wide still I do not know. Thanks!, admission fees unlike enters the payment in the ordinary boundaries with tranquillity and grandeur. A mysterious sensation. The Association have not seen such association, covered with stone, but design in Finland design Kingdom rest femininity was evident in abundance. I wanted to listen to the pipe organ are played, unfortunately not played. Worth a look I think that attraction is.

  • It is not an average church, so definitely worth it if you are interested in architecture. We stayed there for maybe 10 minutes. There is not much more to see.. entree €3  more »
  • Is a dome-shaped using natural rock Church. Walking distance from the central station take tram will soon. Admission is free, but donations are € 3 getting started knowing what tickets I bought I. Pipe organ sound is good.
