Map
3 Lutherinkatu, Helsinki, SF 00100, Finland

Built in 1969 and carved out of solid bedrock, the top of this modern church (called Temppeliaukio in Finnish) hovers aboveground like a spaceship. It also does duty as a choral and classical music venue and is known for its window-studded, light-capturing ceiling covered with over 13 miles of copper stripping.
