  • Finnish - church.

    "At the heart of this bustling burg, there are many contradictions. Take Temppeliaukion kirkko, the church of the rock. In an apartment-surrounded square, 10 minutes walk from the centre of town, the church is underground, hollowed out by one of the many bedrock outcrops that come up through the Helsinki ground. To step through its vault-like doors is to enter a space, furnished with austere wooden pews and an altar, of deep silence and contemplation."
    - 'The Arctic Oz' in GW, Guy Rundle, 23 Feb 2008.
