  • Easily traceable, the chapel is at least singular, located in a large square, in front of a huge shopping mall. Detail the shape and the building material. Completely wooden both externally and inside, in its absolute simplicity, with a sense of serenity and tranquility. In fact, the chapel was designed to be a place of recollection and prayer for all religions and, perhaps, achieved the goal. You don't pay to visit.

  • Must visit for travelers and those who are seeking peace. Contemporary architectural design mostly made out of Finnish wood. You will really find peace once you enter in. There is a street market right outside of this modern church but after going inside it's completely quiet.
  • The place has been built with a lovely idea. It provides help and support to those who need it. This was my personal favourite in Helsinki trip. Inside the chapel is a very quiet place for some peace and reflection. Interesting architecture as well !!!
