Tampere is widely regarded as Finland’s second city, with only Helsinki having a larger population and land area. Located away from coastal areas, Tampere’s importance is largely as an inland hub for trade and transport. It is found between two lakes, and due to the 18m height difference between the two, the watercourse connecting the two lakes has long been used as a power source for city. This was at the heart of Tampere’s industrial heritage, with mills being powered by the rapids. Tampere is 160 km north of Helsinki and can be reached by high speed train. The most popular sights in Tampere are Särkänniemi and the Tampere Hall.
