Tampereen Tuomiokirkko, Tampere

4.4
#1 of 9 in Historic Sites in Tampere
Admire the symbolist murals of Tampereen Tuomiokirkko, 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.

  • Stunning unique cathedral. Beautiful frescoes. Amazing stained glass windows. Peaceful atmosphere. Highly recommended.
  • I loved to visit there when there was no worship service going on. I got time to explore the church art all over the place. You know Simberg was an occult and you can see it from the paintings and symbols. Very interesting visit.
  • I was amazed. Simple yet beautiful. Unlike anything I had seen before in Europe.
  • Beautiful Cathedral😍 Came here for museum night and really enjoyed the opera singers. The architecture and interior design of the Cathedral is beautiful. A must see.
  • Great showcase of old Lutheran architecture. Even though I'm not religious myself I thoroughly enjoy the look of the building.
