The world's only church built in rocks, the gate is a little hard to find, such as the tunnel entrance, the appearance of the church will completely overturn the concept. The pipe organ on the rock wall, the piano on the steps, let people not know whether it is a church or a concert hall. After entering, it happens to bump into a chorus in rehearsal, playing in such rocks, with its own echo, tourists unconsciously sit down quietly. Listen and listen. When performing formally, the effect must be first-class.
Rock Church in the heart of Helsinki, also known as Tamperioquio Church. Completed in 1969, it is the masterpiece of the Brothers of Omaranes. Rock Church can accommodate 940 people at the same time. It is held regularly on Sunday morning. Under the echo of the rock wall, the sound effect of the church is excellent, so there are many concerts to be held here. There are many famous churches in Europe, but this church is the only one built in rocks in the world, so you must have a chance to see it. It's very good. It's a special church. It's very impressive.
This is a church without a high spire! This is a church without a bell tower! Its front door was so low-key that I went up to the hill and stood on the top of the church, still looking for the rock church. Finland's Rock Church, also known as Temppeliaukio Rock Church, is located in the Tampere Rock Square in the heart of Helsinki. Is it amazing that the whole square is covered with a huge rock, which is 8-13 meters higher than the street next to it, and the rock church is hidden inside the huge rock? The Rock Church, completed in 1969, is an elaborate masterpiece of the Brothers of Omaranes. Churches are built directly on rocky highlands. In order not to damage the natural landscape, they are excavated from the top of rocks. The churches are buried in the natural rocks. They are really rock churches. If you don't look for it from the street opposite the church gate, it's hard to find the hidden door of the church, and I'm looking for it from the other side. People are standing on the church and wondering where the Rock Church is. It wasn't until I saw a visitor walking down the mound that I realized that the rock church I was looking for was right under my feet! __________ The solemn atmosphere of traditional European churches is not felt when buying tickets. The circular dome inside makes people feel comfortable. An elegant lady was playing the piano, and many visitors were sitting in their chairs and enjoying it quietly. I felt as if I had entered an elegant music hall rather than a traditional church. Looking around, the most distinctive feature is the design of the church dome. The central part is the brilliant vault, reflecting the candlelight beneath, while the outer part is a hundred radial beams and pillars, with transparent glass between the beams and pillars. The sunlight falls through the glass of the dome and shines on the altar in the central area of the rock church, showing the holiness of the altar. The inner wall of the church is the original appearance of unmodified rocks, while the top wall is made of broken rocks, which seems loose and disorderly, and may fall down at any time. But in fact, every stone is carefully chosen, and its original tone adds a sense of return to nature to the church. Careful observation will reveal that water droplets seep from cracks in the rock and flow down the rock wall into the underground water channel, thus enhancing the reverberation effect inside the church. No wonder concerts are held here every week.
A church built of rocks surrounded by surrounding residential areas, whose roof is at first thought to be bamboo braided, and then a dome surrounded by copper wires, is surrounded by red, yellow and blue-black natural-Shaped rocks. There is hardly any special decoration in the church. Except for the huge golden organ, which hangs on the wall of rocks, the others are the platform, candles and green. The plant, the seat of the church is divided into two floors. Once you enter the church, you hear the background music playing soft organ music. In such a simple and quiet space, it is like the sounds of heaven, and you can't stop crying.
Free access, church holy places are more serious, most visitors are still quiet. There is a pipe organ inside, which can go up to the second floor. The shape of the church is very special. There is a path outside the church to climb to the roof of the church, where the local people bask in the sun. There are two souvenir shops at the entrance. One is opened by Chinese people.
Rock Church is a must-see tourist attraction in Helsinki. Its architectural style is very unique. Its walls are made of large blocks of rock. A metal dome made of red copper covers the top of the church. The interior is circular, divided into upper and lower two layers of space is very large. Concerts are often held here, and the melodious sound of the organ is fascinating.
Today's main attraction "Rock Church" is a highly popular recommendation on the Internet, of course, it has its unique features. First, it was built by digging down a granite hill. The walls of the church were made of rocky phosphorus. The top of the church was a wooden dome, like a flying saucer about to land. The dome is surrounded by transparent glass, which provides indoor light through natural lighting. I admire the imagination of the Nordic people and design such a modern and avant-garde church, which deserves the reputation of the design capital. It was a real shock to enter the church. The most eye-catching is a huge pipe organ, but unfortunately there was no live performance on that day. Tourists from tour groups are coming in succession and enjoying a high popularity. I spent more than an hour in the church, watching tourists of different skin colors come and go while observing and filming carefully.
The official name of Helsinki Rock Church is Tempolioquio Church. It is the most distinctive and popular tourist attraction in Helsinki. The church was designed by two brothers, Dimo and Tomo. It was started in February 1968 and completed in September 1969. Rock churches are built in natural rocks by digging down the rocky parts of the highlands on residential streets. Some people think that this is an act of not harming the natural landscape. In fact, it is a must-have creation after the construction budget of the church has been reduced to 25 [%]. It is a masterpiece of the architect's brothers. Another feature of Rock Church is its dome. The dome is supported by 180 spokes. In the center, it is a copper dome with a diameter of 24 meters and coiled with copper bars. The diameter of the copper bars is 2 cm and the total length is 22 km. The outer ring of the copper dome is a 5-metre wide glass window, which can illuminate the whole hall with natural light. The church was criticized for its design and construction, but when the magnificent hall was opened to the public, all the criticisms were silent. The third feature of Rock Cathedral is the organ here. The pipe organ here claims to be the largest in Nordic, with four keyboards, 43 vocal ranges and 3001 pipes in size and size. The church is designed with full consideration of the sound effect of the hall, so it is also a well-known organ performance venue, where many concerts will be held.
Finland's unique "Rock Church" is a sacred and solemn, mysterious and romantic place. You will hear pure natural music "Ode to Joy". There is no sound equipment here. The sound seems to come from ancient times. It is the rhythm of nature and life, but it percolates into your marrow. (Rose) (Rose) (Rose)
If you look far, you can't find it anywhere. It's not small. When I went there, I caught up with a little concert. Someone was playing the piano or something all the time. On the shelf at the church door are short, concise and enlightening sentences from the Bible in various languages. The quality of Chinese is poor, but the English is beautiful. I took a few of them, and later I gave them a luxurious perfume in the cruise duty free shop in Finland to Stockholm, hee hee, happy. There are many souvenir shops written in Chinese on the road facing the entrance of Rock Church. One of them is opened by a Chinese. If you walk down from the church, the shop is on the right hand side. It sells refrigerator stickers that are found everywhere in Finland. There is a small piece of wood that is empty and transparent. It contains broken amber. Having been in Finland for a long time, this is a souvenir that must be touching, because Finnish amber is very famous. If you really want to buy something to commemorate and give away, this shop is the cheapest one you've ever seen. It's about 3 euros or more. Other stores are usually about 6 euros.
