This wooden cross church located next to Tampere Central Square was built in 1825.

The bell tower designed by Carl Ludvig Engel was completed in 1828.

Inside you can find the beautiful organ and pulpit. There are seats for 300 people.

The church is a very popular wedding church.

The Tampere Vanha Church is located in the center on the Main Square Keskutori. It is a very nice yellow wodden cross church from 1825. The tower is very big compared to the rest of the church and not build together with the rest of the church. The church is the second oldest building in Tampere. It has been renovated in the years 1953, 1954 and 2000.The church is mainly used by the Swedish Lutheran people in Tampere.We were very much looking forward to see the church but unfortunatly we did arrive after 15.00 an the church was closed.
Will see it next time in Tampere

Located in the main square. I must say this is one of the loveliest main squares I have seen, it is tiny but compact and the yellow church adds some charm to it. <3 Visit Tampere.

The Vanha Kirkko (old church) is a beautiful piece of history in the heart of Tampere, Keskustori (market square). Other beautiful buildings around the square too.

One of the landmark features of the city of Tampere, a city of many landmarks. As you walk down the main street Hämeenkatu, opposite the main bus station is Vanha Kirkko, and beyond that the amazing vista of Finlayson and to the left, the city hall, the scene of severe fighting during the Finnish civil war in 1918.

This is one of the first landmarks you notice upon coming into the city. It's very stylish, partly wooden.

This old church is centrally located although somehow in a wrong place. The building has totally different style than other buildings of this area. However, church itself is beautifully designed and well-maintained.

Pretty basic old wooden church.

During the summer you can see a lot of weddings taking place in there, very popular.
Represents some old architecture in the city of Tampere. Located right in the middle of the city at kauppatori.

This beautiful wooden church is Vanha Kirkko which means Old Church and it is in the city center of Tampere. It locates on Keskustori area and it is easy to reach. Every Sunday at 4 pm there is an English Service,.The Service is Lutheran/ Anglican. Worth to visit at Sundays.
