  • It is a chapel in the corner of a lively square near the central station. From the exterior, the chapel is a modern feature that is not visible. You can enter for free. The inside was a very simple construction, and it was a place to pray to the silence according to each feelings.

  • I was only there a short time but it is very nice to simply go in and sit down. The only thing you will hear are the people moving around.  more »

  • Masterpiece of modern architecture. Place of silence in the busy city center. Good for your eyes and soul. Also there are wonderful concerts there every now and then. Definitely one of the best Finnish modern architecture piece. Worth seeing inside and out.
  • It's not far from the Rock Church. Uhm good to be silent for a while if u need a break time. Nothing except silence
