Tampere Cathedral, Tampere
(4.2/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Admire the symbolist murals of Tampere Cathedral, a historical Lutheran church and the seat of the Diocese of Tampere. The murals and frescoes by Hugo Simberg are the church's highlight. Two of these were a source of controversy when they were first revealed: "The Garden of Death" represents a garden of dead souls harvesting flowers, and "The Wounded Angel" features a winged serpent in the center of the church's ceiling. The frescoes remain and today add to the ambiance of an otherwise modest church building. The artwork in the church, which was built between 1902 and 1907, serves as an example of the national Romantic movement in Finland. With our international travel planner, Tampere attractions like Tampere Cathedral can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Get into the Cathedral was not simply due to the mode of operation, TC was in Tampere only 2 days (Saturday and Sunday). In Saturday reached this site about 4:00 and the Cathedral is open from 11-15. Around the Cathedral are constantly a lot of children and adolescents, in my opinion is opposite the school, or they just catching Pokemon, I don't know). But Sunday, finding the entrance to the Cathedral, there was absolutely no one was only a plaque with the inscription "on the second floor repairs, don't climb." inside the Cathedral a small, humble but beautiful. While I was there, came a group of school children with a guide, so I was hoping to wait more and organ concert, but my hopes were dashed.

  • Recommend it to a friend born in Tampere has been done. Odoroodoroshikute mural in the Church and does not seem at first glance. I was scared. Might be hesitant to enter the kinda person who regulates the organ without the. I refrain from even taking photos. But of this church-and is a dynamic and inspiring. By the way now Pokemon GO Jim! Because the two boys were doing secretly fought.

  • A place to stop by if you're in town and if you want to have a quiet moment. The architecture isn't extraordinary but it is very old and nice.

  • If you like or even if you don't like to visit churches, this one is worth to visit. During daytime the paintings inside are interesting and in the night time the outside looks picturesque.
  • Was elected the most beautiful church in Finland about a decade ago. Need to say no more.
  • It's very comfortable inside to worship God
  • Nice bilding
  • Awesome building. both from the in- and the outside.
