Do as I have already done!

For me Tampere is home though I have never lived there. I lived my childhood and teen years in NOKIA, which is only 15 km from Tampere and spent a lot of my time in Tampere. There I met my first boyfriends and got my first broken heart. There I went to rock concerts and had more fun. Tampere is full of memories for me, but it is much more than that.

With its 200.000 inhabitantants Tampere is the biggest inland city in the Nordic countries. it is located between two lakes; N?sij?rvi and Pyh?j?rvi, on a narrow isthmus. Though Tampere is often connected and not without a reason to industry it is much more than that. Did you know that in 1882 the first electric lights in the Nordic Countries switched on at Finlayson Factory?

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Big enough to be a city but still close to the nature
  • Cons:In "my" Tampere - NONE!!!!

    I would like to visit Tampere but it's too far from my possible way to Turku by car next year... Carl Ludvig Engel left great tracks here as everywhere in Finland. That's why its cities look very Russians I think. Happy New Year coming soon!

    I spent a few weeks in Finland last year and just two days in Tampere. I liked it very much. And you know what? I also found that toilet in Sokos department store!

    Hi Sini, nice Tampere page. I worked for a short time at Nokia. Did'nt realise it was a place name as well. I spent a weekend in Helsinki connected with my job at Nokia, its a lovely city. Regards from Martin
