When you are doing sightseen in Helsinki, remember to see this church. Even though if you are not fan of churches, go see this.

Looks like a bunker from the outside, but astonishing beauty within! Can get a bit crowded with all the tourists.

What a beautiful church. In the middle of sleeping area, inside of the rocky hill there is a round church. So pure, simple and elegant!
