Tampere is situated in southern Finland and is among the largest Finnish cities. It's located between two great lakes; Näsijärvi and Pyhäjärvi. The history of Tampere includes the beginning of industrialization and its development. Today, Tampere remains as the center of Finnish industry.

The nature of the Tampere region is also remarkable. The large gravel formed during the ice age, called Pyynikki ridge, gives wonderful views over the two lakes. The amazing, colorful area of well-preserved wooden houses called Pispala is among the popular attractions of the city.

In addition, Tampere’s social and cultural life consists of many different kinds of public saunas, interesting museums such as the Finnish Labour Museum Werstas, Spy Museum (Vakoilu-Museo), Lenin Museum, and Moomin Museum, as well as events and festivals during the year.
