This is such an amazing idea in the middle of the hustle bustle of a city. Ideally if you can time it so there aren't too many people around, it's that much more profound an experience because you'll really get the "silence".

Plain, simple, nice. It is unusual as next to a large shopping center, but beautiful in its simplicity. Must see.

The outside is quite an eye catch and it is an engineering marvel to have thought and built this building, The inside of the chapel is very clean and elegant in design and the wood work is quite fascinating

This small chapel is a great visit, very easy to miss as it is very small but a beautiful Contemplative space. No cost and no photos. We really enjoyed the silence and light. We are both architects and enjoyed the craft of making as well

Small, simple, just a wooden chapel in the centre of town beside the Scandic Simonketta hotel. No admission fee unless you want to make a donation. Check the opening hours (10 am to 6pm I think)

This little chapel is an architectural gem, and the perfect peaceful antidote to the bustle of the city. The sanctuary is even sound proofed! There are social service and church staff on site, should you need a listening ear.

Unique design in a strange location Just in the middle of a square in between all shopping centers it stands. Inside it is totally an isolated space from the outside noise. Simple but impressive design Don’t miss

It is great woodwork, but it kind of doesn't fit with the 100 year old buildings around it. Basically a quiet wooden room.

I was so surprised by this tranquil spot in the busy city. Beautiful design. The most simple of spaces. Silence. Beeswax candles. A thoroughly wonderful place to pass a few moments and look within. I loved it

If you're taking trem no 2/8/9 you can stop by Simonkatu and walk for like 5 - 10 minutes. If you're taking trem no 3, you can stop by the Main Railway Station (Rautatieasema) and heading through Sokos building and cross... More
