  • Absolutely LOVED this spot. In the middle of the city, having a respite like this is so important in our lives. We rarely take the TIME to be quiet. We don’t sacrifice our scheduling to just do nothing. This chapel allows that. The architecture is beautiful, natural, and unique. I highly recommend you spend time here!
  • This was a nice retreat from the white noise of the city. We were fortunate to be the only ones in the chapel for a time and the silence was very peaceful.
  • Good to mediation
  • Very beautiful chapel. Minimalistic, free entrance and the staff were very nice. Inside it was super quiet and great for reflection.
  • An interesting, small but modern architecture with a profound religious meaning among noisy and busy shopping center Kamppi. Free entrance and the staff were very nice. The architecture belongs to minimalism. Inside it was really quiet, great acoutics and reflection. But prohibite to take photographs inside. A wonderful place to visit
