Tampere is a city located about 170 kilometers north of Helsinki in the Pirkanmaa region. It is the third largest city in Finland ( in terms of population) and was the capital of the country long ago. It is now the second largest urban area in the country. It's one of my favorite cities in Finland, perhaps because I had gotten to spend the night in the city right after the snow had fallen and it was really beautiful.
I have had to stop several in this city many times ever since I traveled with Ryanair which has a small terminal some distance from the city. If you ever think of going to Tampere don't spend the night in the terminal because its really cold.
