The Church in the Rock is a listed building located in the centre of Helsinki .The church was built in 1969 and  designed by two architect brothers Timo and Tuomo Suomalainen. It has become one of Finlands most visited attractions and  has received over twenty million visitors since its construction. The church is a popular concert venue and choirs,orchestras and singers from all over the world have performed in the church.
