Visit the Temppeliaukio Church, built inside solid rock. Optional visit to the Synagoge
Join me on a drive from harbour to the so-called rock church (not possible on the coaches) then visit the church when it is open.
Official Helsinki Taxi will take us up to the church door. Please note that the church is not accessible when there is a service or a concert, but I know how to find out. It is also possible to acquire concert tickets in advance and also participate - the tour can be prolonged by special appointment.
There is also a synagoge in Helsinki, visits must be booked in advance and there is an entrance fee there.
Return to ship with a possibility to stop at a venue of your choice. Recommended: the open air market or the flea market.
Entrance to the church depends on opening hours that vary each day, I will check in advance. This tour can also be modified to be an easy panoramic city tour, passing by all the main highlights.
