Kallio Church.

Kallio Church (Finnish: Kallion kirkko, Swedish: Berghälls kyrka) is a Lutheran church in the Kallio district of Helsinki, Finland. It was designed by Lars Sonck and represents National Romanticism with Art Nouveau influences. The grey granite church, completed in 1912, is one of Helsinki's most identifiable landmarks.[1]

The church is a popular venue for concerts, especially organ music, thanks to its acoustics.[1][2]
