  • Very unique! It's very small and hard to find but worth looking for. It's amazing how it was built and it looks brand new. We were the only ones inside and we were able to enjoy the quite. A very beautiful chapel that should be in your itinerary if you are in Helsinki.
  • Lovely place to visit if you need some time away to reflect. I recommend going during off peak hours. Simple and beautiful design.
