Unusually nice looking cathedral for Finland. It has also an excellent park around, so even if one is not into visiting religious place it may be worth to stop by for a short visit.

This church is an important part of Finnish culture both in terms of architecture and art. If you visit in Tampere, go there and spend some time to understand why. Paintings especially are something very special.

We organized a concert for a famous tenor singer and found the church excellent place to have ones. Next one is coming in January 2016.

Impressive and imposing views from the outside. Cathedrals often make the best pictures die to their over all style and expanse. Unfortunately I could not gain access to the interior and murals. Still a must visit for the photo opportunity.

Nice cathedral with a Finnish style. From the outside, the architecture is quite impressive. The paintings worth the visit. There are really interesting.

Tampere Cathedral has been built in the era, when Finland was not independent nation. Inner war divided Finnish people in two parts. The place where to build the chuch wasn`t simple question. Tampere Cathedral is impressive outside and especially inside. Hugo Simberg´s frescos are universal.

I visited Tampere in February, so it was a little chilly! We found the cathedral easily, and it was beautiful inside. It was quite small so didn't take long to navigate. Recommend you go and see it while there, and also is free.

Architecture simple & beautiful. Works of art unusual & stunning. Very peaceful on this rainy day as I was the only visitor! The stained glass windows are breathtakingly beautiful and the serpent on the roof of the main vault is a masterpiece.

Really unconventional and intriguing art that buffles the mind and at the same time awakes the spirit. I am sure though of how I would feel if I go in there seeking solace and I look up into the ceiling.
