The Chapel of Silence is located in the very heart of the city. It looks as if it landed from a different planet, compared to the other buidlings in the area. It promises a moment or several moments of silence, for those in need of a break from the surrounding capital rush. And it delivers. What it also delivers is... More

A free attraction and would definitely stop by if you're in the area. Not sure it would be worth going out of your way to visit. Imagine a sauna without the heat.

This is a tiny chapel which is designed to suck out any noise from around and you feel the quiet as you walk in (of course other people generate noise to you'd only experience absolute silence if you are on your own) What makes this a great venue is that it is free and is run by social services so...

Kamppi Chapel is a lovely warm place for a quiet of reflection, away from the noise of the city. You don't realise how little complete silence you have in your life until all you can hear is the blood rushing through your body.

The Kamppi Chapel is located on the south side of the busy Narinkka square in central Helsinki. It offers a place to quiet down and compose oneself in one of Finland's most lively urban spaces.The chapel was built for the Helsinki World Design Capital in 2012
