I moved to Tampere almost 5 years ago and fell in love with the city immediately. Throughout my years here I have explored every corner of the city and studied a lot about its’ history. Additionally, I completed my Master's Degree here, and now I am doing own PhD research. I feel as Tampere has a lot to offer, and I want to show it to others. I guided all my friends and relatives who had visited me here, and since I run out of them, I wish to move beyond. I know Tampere and what makes it stand out, and I am willing to show it. So welcome aboard!
We will walk around Tampere's city center, explore Finlayson area, climb the hill of Näsi park, walk through Hämeenpuisto, arrive to Laukontori and from there go to Moro Sky bar.
