You won't find any masterpieces of architecture in the centre of Tampere. I would call it nice but rather dull. The cobbled main street Hameenkatu didn't impress me at all.
In the picture the theatre of Tampere. In fact we paid more attention to this 'living statue' of Rembrandt.
Some buildings in Tampere are very nice and deserved your speacila attention....
My impression that there is no dominant architectural style in Tampere, everything is like variety of voices singing one good song.
There are several observation towers in Tampere.
The most known is the most modern one, Nasinneula, the highest and the revolving restaurant on the top, however we chosen another one - Pyynikki. I was tempeted by the promise of the best doughnuts in town which are cooked on the ground floor of the tower, indeed they were great!
There are many architectural gems in Tampere and I've had the opportunity to visit these places being well guided by my two local architect friends: The Kaleva-Church where they got married and located just next to their appartment.
It's one the prestigious work of the famous Reima Pietilä who also designed....
Favorite thing: Famous Doll museum in Tampere was closed for unknown to us reasons, 'museum district' that is was also closed because of winter time, but anyhow we stay in this place for the first time and even to go through it’s central streets was a great pleasure for us.
You see, Tampere is quite diffrent in styles...
This small bridge somehow reminded me of the one in Rotterdam, Erasmus bridge.... it seemed to me like its smaller brother....
Favorite thing: ...the Metso - library...
