A meditation spot for many. I love the felt cushions that look like rocks. There are too many people now visiting it (just taking pictures, even though you shouldn't), but in autumn and winter it quiets down and is a great place for a pause...More

The Chapel of Silence is a peaceful and perfect retreat from the business of Helsinki. I visited during a time when I had just heard sad news about a dear friend, and the chapel was a beautiful place to be silent and say a prayer.

Amazing object inside, simple but impressive in rounded walls, completely in wood, acoustic, and beautiful silence. Take a short rest inside from a hard day sightseeing.

A few minutes from the main station, but easy to miss. A beautiful space, superbly designed, which is there for quiet contemplation.

It's a small, quiet and peaceful corner in the middle of downtown Helsinki. The only requirement you have to meet is to keep quiet in there. To those interested in languages, there are bibles in 30+ languages, even a manga bible! You can stay there...More
