Tampere Cathedral, Tampere

4.4
#1 of 9 in Historic Sites in Tampere
Admire the symbolist murals of Tampere Cathedral, a historical Lutheran church and the seat of the Diocese of Tampere. The murals and frescoes by Hugo Simberg are the church's highlight. Two of these were a source of controversy when they were first revealed: "The Garden of Death" represents a garden of dead souls harvesting flowers, and "The Wounded Angel" features a winged serpent in the center of the church's ceiling. The frescoes remain and today add to the ambiance of an otherwise modest church building. The artwork in the church, which was built between 1902 and 1907, serves as an example of the national Romantic movement in Finland.

  • It's very beautiful. I was amazed by the architecture and design. Definitely recommended. It's almost in the very city centre.  more »
  • Really worth a visit. The outer skin of the fine, but from the inside even finer, downright gorgeous and still in the heart of the city. Don't worry about finding a parking space may cause problems.

  • Beautiful cathedral, about 10 - 15 minutes walk from bus station. Great for sight-seeing
  • I was able to see the cathedral just outside but it looks very beautiful cover with snow.
