Finland's most iconic rock church
does not see the splendour of the traditional church and the cascading steps, which look like a flying saucer. The faade of the thick rocky base will be missed if you don't pay attention to it. Inadvertently through the tunnel-like entrance, drill into this rock church, you will find that there is a hole in the sky.
There is no master sculpture, no icon, no gorgeous decoration. The walls of the church are rock. The front is a simple altar with a huge dome above it. Above the rock is a skylight that shines into the sky. Light of the light. On the edge of the altar, the female violinist plays an elegant tunes and listens quietly like a scorpio.
This famous European church was built from a single piece of rock, designed by the famous designer Somaran Brothers, and completed in 1969. Standing outside the church, you can see a huge rock that does not see the spires and bell towers of the church. The bronze vault of the church makes people feel that they are not in the ground. Because the hall is ring-shaped, the sound effect is very good. In addition to religious activities, various concerts including symphonies are held from time to time.
Finland is also known as the capital of design. The rock church is unique throughout Europe. The entire church is surrounded by a huge rock interior. It is very strange and the design is very creative. Only when entering the church can the business find his shock, the mysterious design, and the Finns' advocating natural and simple aesthetic feelings are fully reflected here.
Finland, the country with the highest happiness index, is looking for happiness. In the magnificent design of the rock church, it is the meaning of light behind the darkness. This is the only church in the world built in rock. Located in the rocky square of Tampere in the heart of Helsinki, it was designed and built in 1969 by the architect Tim and the Dum Sumarinen brothers. The tunnel-like entrance and the inner walls of natural granite make this place natural and quaint. The unique round dome has a radial beam and pillars, densely inlaid with copper wire. The glass skylight gives it a great light, just like a mysterious flying saucer coming out of outer space.
Going to Finland to see Aurora, passing through Helsinki, you can't miss the famous rock church in Northern Europe.
When it comes to the architectural art of European churches, Finland is definitely not a name. But in the Finnish capital of Helsinki, there is a church that shocks the whole of Europe, that is, the "rock church" built in the rock, also known as the Tamperio Kio Church, which was completed in 1969 and is Siomar. The elaborate masterpieces of the La Nie brothers are surprisingly constructive. The
rock church design is extremely innovative. It is built from the rocky highlands on the residential street. In order not to damage the natural landscape around the church, the Siomara family drilled the rock and the church was built. In natural rock, from the outside of the church, it is difficult to see that this is a church, and there is no cross mark outside the church.
The roof of the church is dome-shaped with a hundred radial beams and columns, and is covered with clear glass. The light comes from the outside during the daytime. The interior of the church is very light and completely free of other lighting.
The first stop to Helsinki is to the rock church. After all, this is a combination of religion and art.
Unlike other churches, it is really impossible to see a church from the outside. It is very special to build in the rock.
After entering, there is a contrast, the outside is so simple, but there is a little science fiction inside, still very shocked.
The largest organ in Northern Europe, and concert performances in the evening, don't miss it!
Whether your interests lie in music, history, architecture or religion, the Temppeliaukio church offers you a unique opportunity to view a monument unlike any other in the world. The commencement of World War II in 1939 prolonged the development of the structure, which resumed in 1961 with an entirely new concept after the brothers and fellow architects Timo and Tuomo Suomalainen won the second competition held for the design of this Lutheran church. Built directly into a natural rock formation that is flooded with light through a glazed dome, the church often doubles as a concert hall because the exposed rock walls provide excellent acoustic qualities.
