To be honest, we were mildly impressed by the Chapel of Silence. Sure, it’s rather unusual as such. But unfortunately that’s it. more »
Probably the most beautiful small reflection place in the world. Easy to access, open all year round, the beautiful minimalist design, fresh, clean, unassuming, respectful, and with a great location in Helsinki downtown. The best part is that they do not allow pictures. You have to be there to feel the tranquility and reset your mind
It was smaller than I envisaged and I was not blown away by the insides. It would have been a better experience if people remembered to close the door so the silence can truly be experienced. Having said that, it was great to find a place where I could soak up a tiny bit of silence during my manic day. It is worth a visit too.
