The famous 'Church in the Rock'
Topped with a copper dome, the church looks like a half-buried spaceship from the outside. In truth, it's really a modern Lutheran church carved into the rock outcrops below. The sun shines in from above, illuminating the stunning interior with its birch pews, modern pipe organ, and cavernous walls. Ecumenical and Lutheran services in various languages are held throughout the week.
Is this church beautiful? I have heard from many people - among them Finnish friends - that they don't like it, and I haven't yet decided on that question for myself. Anyway, it is SPECIAL, isn't it?
