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.

  • Awesome Church in Tampere, Finland. The miracle that it landed out of the 70 's innostuksissaan. However, the bun-Helin House got the ride which is why I wondered for a long time in Turku. Well this church is so good in this and the architecture of the churches of Finland and last international comparison, too.

  • The Web may be conveniently reserved Entourage free tutorial. Sara knew how to tell the history of the Church paintings and interesting things. We were able to admire the works of art in the organ loft window closer to home. The Church inside painted stories reflect their time better than history reports or museums.

  • 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.
