Destination Revisited: Helsinki, Finland

I miss Helsinki, one of my favorite places to visit and live during the year. No travels due to COVID-19 and serving my lockdown in Melbourne.

This is one of the world's most unique churches located in Helsinki. The Temppeliaukio Church also known as the Church of the Rock and Rock Church is built directly into solid rock. The altar wall has an ice-age crevice that serves as the altarpiece. The church hall is covered with a copper lined dome with concert-level acoustics. Make sure you add this venue to your Helsinki to-see list.

All of us live somewhere with interesting sights. We travel to new destinations. Some of us jet set and live in different places around the world. Affluent Society's Destination Revisited Series reminds us that travel is still possible during these COVID-19 times by posting and sharing photos of places and experiences. It gets us dreaming and inspires our travel plans for the foreseeable future. This photo adds to the Destination Revisited Series. Now its time to share yours.
