The Chapel of Silence is right in the heart of the retail district, just in front of Kamppi Shopping Centre. Its wonderfully peaceful inside, where you can sit in quiet reflection for as long as you want. Its very minimalist inside, yet warm and tranquil. A great concept to counter urban stress.

I took my group of 11 students here - well prepared and the sat in silence for 15 minutes and contemplated. They were wonderful. Didn't think they would all make it to the end but they were really respectful of the place.Quite moving.

It's nice to see as it's unusual but I wouldn't go out of your way. It's right in the centre by the railway station and next to the bus station so you will probably go past it at some point. It's free to in.

Minimal wooden chapel in the very heart of Helsinki - worth a visit for the contemporary Finnish architecture and a moment of silence.

An amazing tiny chapel in the middle of the city. If you want to have a break and enjoy a piece of meditation this is the place. A unique architectural experience.

Was a nice place to sit in silence and just be with your own thoughts. Free entry makes it a bargain and it wasn't overly crowded
