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.

  • The extraordinary murals and window glass give pause for thought and wonder, challenging but not confronting conventional Christian ideas. 
  • the Cathedral is very beautiful architecture, otherwise not specifically of the content if you like architecture of the Vikings will have pleasure.

  • 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.
