Quarried out of the natural bedrock, Temppeliaukio Church was designed by Timo and Tuomo Suomalainen and completed in 1969. It stands at No. 2 in Helsinki’s Top 10 Architecture List. It is used for religious services and is also a popular venue for concerts.
Restaurant Day (once a year) is a fine example of Helsinki’s food culture. Soup in a shoe shop, cupcakes and bagels in the park, or Finnish local food in the courtyard of an apartment building. Locals are invited to set up their own pop-up restaurant.
Our Restaurant yesterday and today has been Raffaello’s where we have thoroughly enjoyed our main meal.
Below is a Florist shop photo as gardens with flowers are not to be seen during the Winter months.
