A calm and quiet atmosphere to concentrate your mind spiritually. I am impressed to notice that they even provide social support and care for those who needed it. This is a simple but spectacular piece of art in the middle of the city.

It's a beautifully peaceful place in the city center. Perfect for a moment of meditation or just pure relaxelaxation. And the architecture is really spectacular.

very beautifully designed Scandinavian house. This building offers space to have a silent moment in the middle of the city center.

After writing reviews for the main cathedral and the Russian Orthodox brickworks, I wanted to write a nice review about this church. Visit lasted 10 minutes. Welcomed by friendly staff members. Had Bibles in multiple languages. Nice architecture and perfect silence. Would recommend for short, silent visit!

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.
