I liked walking around the grounds, however I arrived too early to see the inside! There were some nice plants, and some seating located in the grounds.

I regularly visit churches during trips, and I have never come across anything like this one right in my home town. The outside is made of big grey blocks of stone, that alone is rather unique. The inside is beautiful, paintings by Hugo Simberg on...More

A visit to Tampere Cathedral is a must! The frescoes are absolutely amazing and the stone building itself is an awe inspiring structure.

Life, death and religious themes are served in a fancy manner in this cathedral. This church is not only significant for its building style, representing the Scandinavian pre war style, called the national romantic era. National romantic era borrowed inspiration from myths and traditions. What...More

I really like the exterior of this church. This is the most beautiful example of National Romantic Style. The frescoes inside are quite interesting, and controversial: a winged serpent and naked angels. Worth seeing, and it's free, of course.

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.
