A church within a rock, As the title suggests ! quite unique and worth a visit if you are in Helsinki . Easy to transport using tram or a mile walk from the centre. Go upstairs as you get some lovely pics.

Generally church services in Finland are down to earth and open for everyone. Therefore just open the door and sit in the bench.
