Tampere is the gateway to Finland’s breathtaking Lake District, and is squeezed between the massive Lake Näsijärvi and Lake Pyhäjärvi. Tampere was once a powerful industrial city, but today the old red-brick warehouses play host to art galleries, independent boutiques, and trendy restaurants. The infectious nightlife and general beauty have ensured that Tampere always tops Finnish image surveys: it’s been voted the most attractive place in the country by Finns who are considering a move.
