Worship Sundays at 10 am with Lord's supper

Beautiful church, organ music and Worship Sundays at 10 am with the Lord's supper, check opening times in advance, as the church is not always open to the public.

If you are interested in architecture, this is absolutely the must! Style is called National Romantics. There are several buildings around Tampere(and in Finland) but here are also the frescos of Hugo Simberg, which include symbolism of those days.

Visit this church to see some of the most important pieces of murals and paintings by the painters of the Finnish Golden Era.

This is the nicest church in Tampere. It is an old stone church that was renovated and looks very nice. Outdoors is a beautiful building and indoors it is always interesting to see the design and the architecture. Not a long visit but a must see when being on a visit to city.

The diamond of the churches in Tampere. This old stone church has been restored to its former glory by the Church community. During the year they have many music and religious concerts as well as performances. The artwork in the Church is unique even in the scale of Finland. One of the most famous art pieces there is the "garden... More

This is a fascinating church - very interesting stained glass windows and murals. Services take place on Sundays at 10am, and it's probably worth seeing the building in use. We were too late, but still enjoyed our visit very much. If I were to show people around Tampere, this would be very high up on my list of must-sees!

I am a fan of places of interest, architecture and history of each country I visit. This cathedral has nothing special, one more historical sacral building in a small cozy Northern town of Europe. If you won't visit it, you won't loose anything.

This cathedral is situated near railway station and is easy to access. The atmosphere is very calmful and there are some very fine paintings on the ceiling and on the walls. Acoustics is very well, so if you are able to visit during time, when there is some organ concert, or choir singing, it is definitely worth going there.

The cathedral in Tampere makes very strong impression. The cathedral looks very much majestically outside and adequately from within. Very beautiful architectural forms create mood. The cathedral is located in five minutykh of walking from the railway station and certainly deserves at least short visit. The building of a cathedral needs to be bypassed from all directions to receive full... More
