  Temppeliaukio 'Rock' Church

Besides the rock surface of the walls another striking feature of this church are the windows. You can see them in this picture and that gives you an idea of the effect they have. It is one big window going all around the top of the church, being supported by numerous beams. The light flows into the church in a special way, even on a cloudy day like this, the church is bathing in light. Wow, I would have loved to see it on a sunny day, that must be really fantastic! The church interior is sober of style, but that fits perfectly to the architecture, creating a serene atmosphere.
