    The view is quite breathtaking at the top. You get a free cup of coffee with your ticket. The lift itself had some lighting and music

    This block of wooden buildings showcases the working-class lifestyle and history. The museum area is a typical enclosed quarter of the 1880s including 32 apartments, which illustrate the life of local industrial workers from 1880 to 1970.

    The museum is open only during the summer. There are a lot of stairs to climb.

    The Finlayson Area is a fantastic area close to water.
    It was build by a Scottsman as a Cotton Mill and to day this big area is full off different life, Museums, dining place, theater, shops and offices and lots of things to do.
    Go there and see the history of Tampere.

    Tampere Orthodox Church was completed in 1899. This red-brick church is located near the railway station.

    On our visit, the church was fenced around and there were construction works on the street next to it.

    This Evangelist-Lutheran church built in Gothic Revival style is located in the Finlayson industrial area. It was built in 1879 as the church of the Finlayson cotton factory, where the factory workers could practice religion.

    The church has also served as the “Children’s Cathedral” since 1996. Because of its central location, small size, and pleasant architecture, the church is one of the most popular wedding churches in Tampere.

    On our visit, the church was closed. So we couldn't see the interior.

    Church was completed in 1966. You can find lot of wooden surfaces inside the church. The layout shape resembles a fish, an ancient symbol of Christianity.

    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.

    Great former redbrick factories border the mainly restrained rapids connecting the two lakes surrounding Tampere. The bridge is the central part of the main street Hämeenkatu leading from the railway station to Pyynikki. This summer it is also a big construction site as the new tramline is still under way.

    I was there many times already and love the place. Staff is nice and speak also various languages. They have different events every few month. All very friendly people. I would say best age for kids there is 0-6 years.

    Nationally second to Helsinki in railway traffic the station is still relatively small though enlargements have been made since it was designed in 1936. The style is Functionalism visible in the high lobby and elegant lamps, the tall clock tower stands separately. The Intercity train takes only 1,5 hours from Helsinki making Tampere an ideal day trip destination as you will arrive straight in the city center.
