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.

  • Nothing mindblowing, but it's a neat church to look at. I like the style, but didn't take a look inside.

  • I love visiting cathedrals during my travels, and Tampere cathedral did not disappoint! The frescoes & stained glass windows are stunning and unique!
  • Clean, calm, and beautiful. These three words are enough to describe this church.
  • This is a nice cool place, very attractive and the largest church in Tampere. It's more of historical site having been built nearly a century ago.
  • One of the most beautiful churches I've ever been.
  • Stunning artwork inside and a very knowledgeable guide.
