What are we going to do

Did you know that Tampere is one of Finland's most wonderful art nouveau cities, along with Helsinki and Turku? Art nouveau architecture flourished in Finland and Tampere from the end of the 19th century to the mid-1910s.

In the 1920s, Tampere still had wonderful art nouveau streets, which could well have been compared to the most spectacular art nouveau blocks in Riga. The walking tour introduce you to Tampere's most beautiful art nouveau buildings in the city centtre.

On a guided walking tour we raise our eyes from street level up and get to know the wonderful art nouveau architecture of Tampere Keskustori, Hämeenkatu and nearby streets. The tour also includes the Tampere central fire station designed by Wivi Lönni, Finland's first independent female architect, and we also visit Tampere Cathedral, which is considered one of the most significant buildings of Finnish national romantic architecture. The tour ends at the Cathedral.
