"Rock Church" Temppeliaukio (Rock) Church Tip by MikeAtSea
Temppeliaukio (Rock) Church, Helsinki: 71 reviews and 124 photos
Built into solid rock and consecrated in 1969, this church is about 2 blocks west of the National Museum in the Töölö residential district, west of Mannerheimintie. It was designed by two architect brothers, Tuomo and Timo Suomalainen, who chose a rocky outcrop rising some 12m above street level. The interior walls were blasted from bedrock and because of its superb acoustics, the church is often used as a concert hall. Before its change to an English name, this church was known for most of its time as the Temppeliaukio Church.
