Jail turned into a hotel, exciting place to visit & dine - BEST WESTERN PREMIER Hotel Katajanokka from Katajanokka, Helsinki - within walking distance to Helsinki main shopping streets and attractions.
Because of its history, being former county prison, BEST WESTERN PREMIER Hotel Katajanokka has own chapel, which is in fact the second oldest chapel in Helsinki. Religion was part of the process for villains to find their way back to the society and normal life. Weddings were popular too - because the lucky inmate got extra break from prison - plus the bride could not escape! The hotel continues to host the weddings - the settings are unique, don't you think?
