The interiors of this rare Expressionist church are something to behold

In Copenhagen, Denmark, there’s a church with interiors so stunning, you’ll be saying “hallelujah” in no time.

Grundtvig’s Church is one of the city’s most famous landmarks, and it’s not hard to see why.

A rare example of expressionist church architecture, the structure was built after World War I between the years 1921 and 1940. It was designed by Danish architect Peder Vilhelm Jensen-Klint, who combined Brick Expressionism with Gothic to produce its iconic look.

French photographer Ludwig Favre was drawn to the edifice’s modern geometric forms and classic verticals, so he decided to shoot its 1,800-seat congregation, as well as its spacious vaulted halls and nave.

If you’re into architecture, make sure to visit this place in the future. It’s absolutely heavenly.
