I’m not very familiar with Tampere but my favourite part downtown is the Verkatehdas area. They used to manufacture fabrics in these old red brick buildings (or so the name suggests). Now they have lovely narrow walkways and small shops selling handicrafts and design.
Edit: As Lady of the Cakes pointed out in the comments, these pictures match perfectly Cee’s Which Way photo challenge. There are some pretty cool pictures from all over the world to be seen, so you may want to take a look! As for Lady of the Cakes, her tempting posts don’t do wonders to my attempts to a healthy life style but I enjoy her angles on life and especially languages.
