Amazing Culture Festival of Tampere

Tampere is the city in Pirkanmaa, located in southern Finland. Within Nordic countries, it is at top for population. The city dwells between lakes named Pyhäjärvi and Näsijärvi, Interestingly both lakes have 18 meters level difference from each other. Näsijärvi is at higher level and water flows Pyhäjärvi through the well-engineered Tammerkoski rapids. This has been developed as important power generation source since long. The banks along Tammerkoski have been among the old Finnish industrial areas. That is why people call Tampere as the Finnish Manchester because of its popular local name "Manse" based on its being industrial hub in history too. From Tampere, ride to Helsinki takes 90 minutes by train while by car it takes 2 hours. Another important city Turku ha sthe same distance.
