Reviews of Tampere

Not touristy at all, Tampere is a pleasant city with enough sites to keep you busy for a day. But most of all you're here to see a Finnish city, and life here. Excellent opportunity to visit a public sauna on the edge of town by the lake.

According to some counts, Finland's second largest city, Tempere was an industrial giant, known for its paper and textile factories. Today most of the factories have been converted to shopping malls or office buildings. The best way to enjoy Tampere is to simply start at the train station and start walking, keeping your eyes open.

Tampere is a very walkable, picturesque Finnish city that doesn't get close to the amount of tourism that Helsinki, two hours away, receives. If you're already on the southwest coast of Finland, it's worth checking out.
