This was bizarre but extremely uplifting. We were on holiday so already relaxed but I feel every city should have one of these these as the world and modern day pressures can be stressful.

We are a retired, young at heart, couple in our early and mid sixties; I practice my faith but my other half doesn't, but we do share a love of visiting places of worship when abroad, I pray whilst my other half takes beautiful photos, so we reach a balance. The Chapel of Silence sits on the pavement in Kamppi, next to busy traffic, bustling stores and a huge square; a stunning box of honey coloured wood, somewhere between an egg and a boat shape. Inside wood predominates, walls that are smooth to the touch, simple pews and lectern, some cushions against the wall, felted to ressemble pebbles and a shallow container containing sand for placing candles. Everything, as my other half commented, is pared down to the absolute basics to render the silence and peace most important. You are greeted by members of the ministry team, volunteers I believe, and directed from the vestibule into the chapel. We were lucky enough to be the only ones in the chapel when we visited and it is absolutely beautiful, no street noise penetrates the walls, the ceiling is high and the silence very comforting, very peaceful. I sat and prayed, my other half loved it too and I would highly recommend a visit, whether or not you have a belief, the simplicity and beauty won't fail to move you.

You would expect to find a Chapel in the middle of a vibrant commercial area... it is A nice place for meditation or religious contemplation. Central location, very quiet and peaceful yet easy to access.

The church of silence looks interesting on the outside, but inside it's a rather small space with a few benches, very silent obviously. There's nothing else to do there (even the 4 and 5 star reviews say it), no wall decorations, so you'll probably leave within 10 minutes.

I did not see this on my first visit to Helsinki in 2018, but when I went again in September 2019 with my wife, I made it a point to go there. A wonderful little chapel, very near the main railway station. All made of wood, inside and outside (including the pews). An island of pure tranquility. It is a Lutheran chapel, but people of all faiths (including non-believers!) are most welcome. Worth a visit.
