Temppeliaukio Church

A card from Finland showing Temppeliaukio Church, a Lutheran church in the Töölö neighborhood of Helsinki.

The church is built into solid rock, therefore, it is also known as the Church of the Rock. Natural light brightens the inside through 180 glasses between the dome and the wall. The church is often used for concerts, because of the excellent acoustics. Temppeliaukio Church is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Helsinki.
