I really like the exterior of this church. This is the most beautiful example of National Romantic Style. The frescoes inside are quite interesting, and controversial: a winged serpent and naked angels. Worth seeing, and it's free, of course.

Tampereen Tuomionkirkko contains some very impreesive artwork. The most famous painting inside is the "wounded angel". The artwork around the perimeter of the cathedral caused quite a stir back in the day, as it was a series of some "anatomically correct" naked young boys. Nowadays,...More

We were unable to enter the Tampere Cathedral on the day we visited Tampere. The Cathedral was closed. I can not offer an opinion on the inside of the Cathedral. The building itself is beautiful. It’s very close to the main train station (5min. Walk)...More

The stone construction is amazing. Imagine the impact it would have had in its early history. Worth encircling to check all the details if closed.

Amazing, must see. A little bit hidden but with some help it is easy to find. It's like an oldfashioned-middle European castle... and inside. Unique. I loved the paintings. Worth it!

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.
