The architecture is interesting. It is busy, crowded and surprisingly noisy given it is supposed to be silent. They charge €3 and the toilets are few so the line is very long. Couldn't recommend it.

Helsinki has no real must see attractions and we were there on a Sunday, Mother's Day, so many businesses were closed. We walked to this site from the Tourist information office. It is interesting but truly not a must see. I had envisioned a much larger structure. If you are there on a Sunday, plan your arrival so that the... More

Visited the Rock Church as part of an Insight Vacations tour. Had to walk several blocks from where the coach was able to park. Fortunately the weather was good. Church was interesting, but not overwhelming. Spent about 15 minutes here and checked it off the list. Worth seeing if you are close by, but I wouldn't go out of my... More

Incredible experience! The day we went, the orchestra was doing a sound check so we could also enjoy the fantastic acoustic. This church is a truly unique site not to be missed!

Fantastic melding of the natural environment with modern architecture leveraging local natural stone formations. Lovely acoustics as well.

Dropped in to see this as it is listed quite high on the list of things to do here on Tripadvisor. It is worth a look. Interesting architecture with 22km of wound flat bar copper making up the dome roof. The church is excavated into the rock and is quite cool.

Very cool building. Unique. Only 3euro fee. Try to visit on a day when the crew ships are not in town that is it is well in reach of all those cruiser people.

Beautiful, carved into the rock church. There was a concert there when we arrived so only a quick peak at the inside but well worth the circuitous walk to get there!

This church which was built within the rocks of the area is a marvel to see but is also a quiet place to pray and reflect.
