Visited on our Helsinki hop on bus trip. A beautiful serene place to visit. Highly recommend but check for opening times. We were lucky as towards the end of our visit Church closed for a christening. Well worth a trip.

This church was made out of large boulders & was quite beautiful inside. Very peaceful. Only 3 euros to get in. Well worth a visit.

If it was free, worth a quick (5 minute) visit. Long queues to see a clever but not inspired bit of construction overrun with Chinese/Japanese tourists desperate to be photographed. A good cathedral beats it hands down.

Fair question! Official Helsinki web page gives following answer: "Closed during church ceremonies and events." I would recommend to contact tourist office to get detailed information. Good luck
