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

I'll be honest - opulent, gilded cathedrals put me off. This is not one of those!!! Beautifully constructed from stone, the cathedral is decorated with some of the most stunning paintings I've ever seen. My favourite is "Resurrection," the largest piece at the front of the church. There are leaflets at the back of the church explaining all the artwork... More

I think that a good time to visit the church is 10 am on Sunday morning when there will be the service in Finnish. The hymns will be sung by organs. The church is always open at that time when people come to service. You are welcome to join us to the service.

The stone facade is in contrast with the fresco-painted interior and the byzantine-like arches. Definitely worth seeing. You might also want to attend some of the concerts held in there. A large variety of music is played.

Interesting art work but did not find it as fascinating as travel brochures indicated. Guess it was not my style.

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.
