Tampere Cathedral has been built in the era, when Finland was not independent nation. Inner war divided Finnish people in two parts. The place where to build the chuch wasn`t simple question. Tampere Cathedral is impressive outside and especially inside. Hugo Simberg´s frescos are universal.

I visited Tampere in February, so it was a little chilly! We found the cathedral easily, and it was beautiful inside. It was quite small so didn't take long to navigate. Recommend you go and see it while there, and also is free.

Architecture simple & beautiful. Works of art unusual & stunning. Very peaceful on this rainy day as I was the only visitor! The stained glass windows are breathtakingly beautiful and the serpent on the roof of the main vault is a masterpiece.

Really unconventional and intriguing art that buffles the mind and at the same time awakes the spirit. I am sure though of how I would feel if I go in there seeking solace and I look up into the ceiling.

If you like to see unconventional sacred illustration that differs from any other illustrations, visit Tampere Cathedral in Finland. The frescos don’t let you easily off. You’ll be startled and you have to think about the message more deeply by going into 1.Genesis 3:15. Think...More

This architectural National Romantic art-work from 1906 (Lars Sonck) is increadible: the heavy great granit "castle" gives a strong sense of lightness and hope, both outside and inside, in spite of this typical, heavy materials often used in monumental buildings at that time, when art...More

A huge piece of local history, still active today. Potrays a vision of an era for the future. Stout and powerful image of the religion that ones was.

As far as I can remember it was 10.00 to 17.00 but ceremonies or services could mean that this is adapted. We went there in the early afternoon at around 13.00.
