Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Painting of “Wounded Angel” is beautiful. Fresco of young boys carrying garland surround the seating area. Quiet and a nice place to reflect.

    Lot's of sights to see from the beach. I saw a guy fishing there when walking by. There's also a place to throw away cremation ashes.

    First of all, it's free. Tons of work related history. There was also an unrelated temporarily added photo exhibition.

    This is a gem of modern architecture at its best. It is by one of Finland's leading architectural couples. In a land where modern architecture thrives, this is one of the best examples.

    This Is a gorgeous Finnish Orthodox Church. Its interior is splendid and even moreso on a Sunday when church is in session.

    This museum is located in Hervanta, in the same premises as the Police University College. The museum is easily accessed from the city center with the new tram (line 3).

    The museum offers information about the Finnish police services throughout the time.

    In addition to the permanent exhibition, the museum features changing special exhibitions. On our visit, it was 'The colored truth – Art crime in Finland'.

    The entrance is free. The museum is suitable for all ages.

    This wooden cross church located next to Tampere Central Square was built in 1825.

    The bell tower designed by Carl Ludvig Engel was completed in 1828.

    Inside you can find the beautiful organ and pulpit. There are seats for 300 people.

    The church is a very popular wedding church.

    This modern church is magnificent. IT is rather plain on the outside but on entering you are transported upward and made to soar.

    Great former redbrick factories border the mainly restrained rapids connecting the two lakes surrounding Tampere. The bridge is the central part of the main street Hämeenkatu leading from the railway station to Pyynikki. This summer it is also a big construction site as the new tramline is still under way.

    This park is located next to the Tampere Hall, five minutes walk from the railway station.

    In the middle of the park is a big pond with a fountain. You can find ducks swimming here.

    There are also many other species of birds living in the cages by the pond.

    Rigth in the center of Tampere on the main street you will find this Sokos.
    Large shopping center were you will find every thing, all very modern and clean.
    Even the Alko shop is present here.
    Easy to find around in this big shop, should be one of the biggest in Tampere.

    High up on the hill by the Milavida mansion is a statue of a woman holding two children in despair. It commemorates the 1929 tragedy of Kuru, a ship full of passengers sunken in the high waves of Näsi lake with 138 lives lost. From below by the shore you can hear the music and laughter of people at the Särkänniemi amusement park.
