One of my favourite places in Helsinki: around is noisy and rich culture, but in the chapel you just forget it. With all its problems and challenges. And if you will have chance to speak with some workers of this chapel and learn the idea of this place, you will love it as I do. I wish everyone to come here!

Also known as the “Chapel of Silence,” this weird-looking round structure is hard to recognize as a chapel, and in fact no holy events like baptisms or wedding ceremonies are held there (although there are prayer meetings). No, this bizarre little space is singularly devoted to providing some peace and quiet. The entire space is designed to be calming, from the round walls to the spacious, high ceiling, it’s almost so comforting as to be womblike. The interior design is kept spare with the natural warmth of the smooth wooden walls left clean and unadorned. The only objects in the space are the futuristic altar, a simple candelabra, and the rows of basic, blocky pews.
As weird as the silent room may appear, it’s innovative design won a number of awards, making a lot of noise for something so concerned with being quiet.
The space has been a hit since it first opened in 2012, and it is estimated that some 250,000 people had visited the space in less than a year. Just a year after that, the number had doubled to around 500,000 That’s a lot of quiet time, especially in an alien egg.

A very unique capel, especially looking from the outside. Everybody can enter this place and I managed to have a very quiet time that was like a detox after such long walking trip :)
Nice place to calm down.
