Carved out of a granite hillside. Copper wire ceiling and the granite walls make for good acoustics. Would be interesting to hear an organ recital there.

Interestins concept for a church. It seemed like a cave with a copper roof. I could imagine what a concert must sound like which I was told they have often there. So what kind of a Church is it?

This is worth a look to see how they have intergrated a church into the Rock. You really only need about 30 mins to see it if that and it makes a nice change from the other hundreds of church's u see around the world....More

This church is very different from any ordinary church and it is carved into rock! It is surrounded by rock and you can still see the drilling marks. The ceiling is covered by copper which add to the special architecture of this church.

We went firstly with the holiday party and then back ourselves for a concert by a young musician on a traditional Finnish "harp". The music was so in keeping with the surroundings and the acoustics were excellent so we just sat on the balcony and...More

A church built underground in the 1960’s. Neat to see but honestly it’s more of a novelty. Very crowded and I’m happy our guide had purchased tickets in advance to avoid the long lines. It was very busy. Neat place to see plan on spending...More

A walk uphill from available parking. Not huge but certainly different. Several souvenir shops nearby. A 3 Euro entrance fee for this church and not open during services.

The tourists were loud and annoying ... I felt no reverence... the design was minimal and progressive for the 1960’s however it just felt like a designer concert hall with a religious twist ...

It was quite beautiful and if you go to the back of the church children and adults can explore the rock outcrop. It is a working church so be respectful. There was no public toilet within so that was annoying.

In all honesty it was a little difficult to enjoy the serene atmosphere a church should offer, as the place was really crowded with tourists. Beautiful design, which is all carved from rock, and lovely organs in the front near the altar. Make sure to...More

Hi, We visited with our large group of about 26 on a Monday afternoon, it was not that crowded, but we made it crowded! I really don't know what time would be best to visit, it is fairly small. I hope this helps you out.
