    Great exhibition of the various developments in living conditions in the area. The guide was great and it definitely added to the visit.

    One of the best museums in town.

    It felt amazing to know that this wonderfully looking area was a mill area once . The buildings are being used as offices , shops , restaurants, cafes etc.
    The area has been done up very well and its a pleasure just strolling through.
    The rapids and the water front views are the highlight.

    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.

    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.

    This tunnel was built for log driving, i.e. moving sawn tree trunks along the water from one lake to another lake. The tunnel was completed in 1968 but it was never used. This is because at that time they started to transport logs by trucks.

    Now the tunnel is an interesting historical relic. You may walk through the tunnel. The tunnel is about 280 meters long. It is a good shortcut between Pyynikki/Pispala Ridge and the lake shore of Näsijärvi. There is a very nice lakeside cafeteria named Uittotunnelin Kahvila (read separate Tripadvisor reviews) next to the northern end of the tunnel. The cafeteria and the tunnel have same opening hours. There isn't any entrance fee to the tunnel.
