... managed to park close to the city centre enabling us to walk through - different when there is no snow lying around. Looking for a coffee shop we found the covered market, actually full of busy city people taking lunch and a superb range to fish for sale. In fact this is the biggest covered market in Scandinavia, according to Pinterest - more research to check this ...
... river which links the two which provides the city with its power. There are still some examples of fine red-brick Victorian buildings, but mainly Tampere is like other Finnish cities.
The hotel is perfectly acceptable, clean and Scandinavian, although the rooms are a little small. But the very thick curtains really help with the short nights in summer.

We didn't get to see the end of their set which was a bit of a shame.. but we were all a bit over it. We left Kaisa at the gig and made our way back to the apartment. We all needed to be up at a reasonable hour.
Next stop will be Stockholm..
