Tampere - classified
Located on the banks of the Tammerkoski Rapids, between lakes Näsijärvi and Pyhäjärvi, Tampere retains a rich tradition of industrial craftsmanship deeply linked to the production of fine fabrics, paper, timber and metals. As in the whole Scandinavian region, here too, the achievements of the past related to wooden construction have had an important role to the point of strongly affecting the historical and / or imaginary identity of the place. Starting from the Stavkirker, passing through the large shipbuilding, up to the smallest and most humble wooden houses painted in punamulta, it is easy to trace a link with the past that is still alive today.
