Anything you need you can find it here (almost)

So, this is the other city I'm living in. It is a big-small-city. Just right size for me :D Here lives over 200 000 inhabitants in Tampere. I call it a big-small-city because the Centre is quite small in my opinion. But I like it. You don't have to walk so much...

Tampere is between two lakes, on the north is Näsijärvi and on the south Pyhäjärvi.

The town is over 200 years old and it can be seen from the architecture, very beautiful buildings ;)

Tampere was the first industrial town in finland and you can see that too from the buildings..

AND it was in Tampere in which we had our first electric light in Nordic countries.. hahaaa :-D

The nature is very near... I have to walk only a 2kilometers from The Center of Tampere to the naure park of Pyynikki...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The location is great, I would say the best in finland ;) Nature is beautiful and the city too. You can find so many entertaiment here while visiting/living!
  • Cons:I'll be thinking about this... real hard!
