“Must visit when in Helsinki”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

It is beautiful, modern and artistic. Even though it is a Christian Church but anyone is welcome to enjoy some peaceful movements. It doesn't matter what religion you belong or if you don't belong any at all, you will still enjoy visiting this place.

“Oasis of Peace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

What an awesome place! We visited here during a hectic tour of the city and I wished I could have stayed there for hours.

The total silence, peace and tranquility are a balm to the soul.

“A latest shame to Helsinki”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

If a small building can destroy already a poor sight, this must be it. Seldom I've seen that much talent lost for a terrible outcome. It resembles a cone of ice cream but I must admit that it is well built.
The idea is great, regardless of faith, it welcomes inside and the built quality is alike making a Swan boat. A bit better than Rolls Royce dashboard

This building is amazingly simple and beautiful. Right in the city centre. It's an oasis of calm and elegant architecture. So so beautiful.

“Wooden magnificence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

As you stroll around the central shopping area, you may stumble across a huge oval shaped wooden building - pop in, enjoy the silence and simplicity - Finns build things so well, focusing on form over function, and this gem is worth a stop.
