Extraordinary inside and out, Tampere's Lutheran cathedral is like no other church. Built in the national romantic style, and designed by Lars Sonck, with much of the interior painting by symbolist Hugo Simberg, it's probably the most Finnish of buildings, if that's possible. For a...More

As far as I can remember it was 10.00 to 17.00 but ceremonies or services could mean that this is adapted. We went there in the early afternoon at around 13.00.
