Located in the main square. I must say this is one of the loveliest main squares I have seen, it is tiny but compact and the yellow church adds some charm to it. <3 Visit Tampere.

This old church is centrally located although somehow in a wrong place. The building has totally different style than other buildings of this area. However, church itself is beautifully designed and well-maintained.

Pretty basic old wooden church. During the summer you can see a lot of weddings taking place in there, very popular. Represents some old architecture in the city of Tampere. Located right in the middle of the city at kauppatori.
