“A piece of quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

This is a chapel where you can go and sit and be quiet. There is always church staff available if you want to talk to someone. But mainly this is a meditation spot next to a busy shopping mall.

The architecture of the chapel is amazing though! So if you don't need a quiet spot, visit for that. If you do want to just be still a little bit, you get the architectural bonus.

“Harmony Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

This is pretty nice place. House of wood - house from wood. When you are sitting in this building, you can feel yourself as in beehive. Also there is quite enough and can feel harmony around. ;-)
Briefly, very nice place for short visit!

“Unusual”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

Liked the architecture. It is well worth a visit right in the heart of the city, quite a small structure.
